Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus
Luisenstr. 58/59, 10117 Berlin-Mitte, Germany

 

Scaling Down and Up of Bioprocesses: Strategies, Tools and Process Performance

The BioProScale Symposium is an event on industrial scale bioprocessing with a long scientific tradition. Target groups are experts from research & development and industrial practice in bioprocessing of pharmaceuticals, food, feed and renewables.

Topics 2024

  • Area 1: Industrial scale process performance and optimization
    Large scale bioreactor/bioprocess characterization and modelling, description of cell and reactor heterogeneities, sustainability of bioprocesses
  • Area 2: Scale down and scale up of bioprocesses
    Process performance across scales and process modes. Scale down approaches, small scale simulators of industrial scale processes, scale related cell physiology, validation of scalability, high throughput bioprocessing concepts
  • Area 3: Process-driven cell performance
    Analysis and modelling of cell populations, optimization and design of cell-cell and cell-bioreactor interactions, microbial co-cultivation
  • Area 4: Integrated bioprocesses
    Circular economy concepts, bioprocess coupling, continuous operation, integrating upstream and downstream operations across scales  
  • Area 5: Process analytical technologies (PAT)
    Sensor integration, data modelling fusion, PAT for faster scale down and up of bioprocesses
