Biotechnology Research and Education Program

Cell Culture Technology Workshop
June 2-3, 2014
Register Online!

Lecture topics include

  • cell physiology and medium components
  • cell line development
  • cell culture kinetics and modeling
  • aeration, mixing, and hydrodynamics of bioreactors
  • scale-up of bioreactors: principles, practice and problems
  • methods of bioreactor operation: batch, fed-batch, perfusion, and continuous

Laboratory sessions include

  • assembly and disassembly of bench top bioreactors (1-10 liter)
  • sterilization procedures
  • preparation of inoculum and inoculation
  • process sampling
  • cell counting techniques—manual and automated
  • process control
  • harvesting techniques
  • operation of single-use bioreactors

Workshop laboratory sessions
The workshop laboratory sessions take place in a newly operational learning facility located within the University of Maryland’s Biopharmaceutical Advancement Facility on the Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR)-Shady Grove campus. The BAF houses bioprocessing equipment for process development and optimization ranging from 1 L to 60 L. All workshop participants will track their own anchorage-dependent and suspension-adapted cell lines over a two day period.  Attendees will also prepare, inoculate, and harvest a cell culture bioreactor. The format is fast-paced, but plenty of time has been allocated for discussion with workshop faculty.

  • Two-day Cell Culture Technology Workshop: $1,295
  • Lodging is not included in registration fee.

Continental breakfasts, catered lunches and coffee breaks will be provided, and are included in the registration fee.
