Our introductory courses are aimed at scientists, operatives and managers who are at an early stage in their career, and who want to gain a broad understanding of the techniques used in biomanufacturing. Delegates are introduced to industry standard procedures, their underlying principles and how these procedures are applied within the fields of biological and advanced therapy manufacturing.
The creation of this course has been funded by IUK through the ATSTN.
Delivered in partnership with industry leaders this three-day course introduces the analytical methodologies and technologies used for the characterisation and qualification of biological therapeutic products, including antibodies and viral vectors. Lecture topics include an introduction to biological therapeutics and advanced therapies, protein form and function, critical quality attributes, approaches for the use of orthogonal methods, an introduction to the principles of design of experiments plus method-specific lectures by industry experts. Our unique training facility houses state-of-the-art equipment for hands-on practical sessions where delegates will experience the analytical methods used for the assessment of product purity and process impurities including protein gel electrophoresis, ELISA, PCR primer design, cell counting and flow cytometry.
