Carol Stanton 

Complimentary Bioprocess Workshop
La Jolla, CA

Please plan to join us for lunch.

Eppendorf invites you to be our guest at a complimentary bioprocess workshop where attendees will benefit as we present and discuss information on Implementation of an Affordable and Scalable Manufacturing Strategy for Gene Therapy.   We will also present A Beginner’s Guide to Bioprocess Modes – Batch, Fed-Batch, and Continuous Processing.

Eppendorf's integrated portfolio of bioprocess systems, software and consumables will be on hand for demonstration including the DASbox® Mini Bioreactor System, the BioFlo® 120 and BioFlo® 320 Controllers, as well as our full line of Single-use Vessels.

The Eppendorf bioprocess solutions have been successfully used in the biopharmaceutical, chemical and nutrition industries as well as applied research for decades.  Our strong synergies in bioreactor technology and polymer manufacturing have helped Eppendorf emerge as a global player and a valuable resource to our customers.


Implementation of an Affordable and Scalable Manufacturing Strategy for Gene Therapy
Upstream bioprocess development is an integral part of gene therapy product development. Cell culture bioprocess development is usually carried out at small working volumes. This helps save time and resources, because several experiments can be conducted in parallel, costs for media are kept low, and relatively little laboratory space is required. When more material is needed for characterization, trial runs, and finally for commercialization, biopharmaceutical companies transition the process to bench scale and then up to pilot or production scale. In this presentation, we will present bioprocess solutions for parallel process development at small scale. Furthermore, we will discuss bioreactor scalability and address several scaling approaches.

A Beginner’s Guide to Bioprocess Modes – Batch, Fed-Batch, and Continuous Processing
We will discuss the differences between batch, fed-batch, and continuous fermentation and how these influence culture growth. As an example, we look at E. coli fermentation processes at bench scale. We track the biomass and nutrient concentrations during batch, fed-batch, and continuous fermentation runs. We explain different methods to analyze the process, including determination of biomass, growth rate, productivity, yield, and analysis of process costs. The  comparisons can help bioprocess engineers to select the most appropriate method to meet their needs.  In our examples we studied E. coli fermentation at bench scale. The principles may also apply to bioprocesses using other microbes or mammalian cells, at both smaller and larger scales.

Lunch will be served after the presentations.
