Workshops at our Customer Evaluation Centre (CEC)

We host a variety of application-based workshops at our CEC in Cramlington, UK, which is just a short drive from Newcastle International Airport.

A range of both upstream and downstream bioprocessing topics will be covered and each event has a specific technology or application focus.
Examples of some focus areas include:

  • Scale-up of cell culture from bench to production
  • Large scale single-use microbial fermentation
  • Mixing technologies that fit your process
  • Regulatory challenges for bioprocessing applications
Upcoming workshops
Large-scale single-use fermentation workshop
November 8, 2018

Single-use technologies are being applied throughout bioprocesses. Our upcoming workshop will focus on how to perform microbial fermentations in single-use fermenters to allow greater flexibility and shorter turnaround times. Internal and external industry scientists will describe the impact of introducing single-use fermenters on their bioprocesses during real life case studies.
