Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 10th Annual

Bioproduction: Scale, Bioreactors & Disposables

Making It Work

August 26-27, 2020


As greater demands place increasing pressure on production, achieving streamlined processes is essential. The revolutions in AI, machine learning, systems biology, and robotics all feed into supporting and innovating bioproduction. This conference provides an overview of the strategies and technologies that are birthing a new age of bioprocessing, including scale-down models, scaling up production, engineering bioreactors, single-use systems, sensors, and automation, while ensuring quality and increasing productivity. A holistic review of bioprocessing will be explored, as well as practical details, such as examining in detail how bioreactors process cells and how to keep those cells happy. 


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Optimising bioprocesses
  • Representative scale-down models
  • Bioreactor engineering and design
  • Online monitoring
  • Artificial intelligence (AI)
