Bioreactor Primer syllabus
This two days course is a hands-on primer on precision fermentation for everyone who wants to learn more about the basic principles of growing microorganisms in a lab-scale stirred tank bioreactor. The course is taught in a show-and-tell fashion by a qualified instructor.
In the course an end-to-end process for an aerobic fed-batch cultivation of Pichia Pastoris in a 2L bioreactor is presented live from start to end in the laboratory classroom.
The course is in-person at BioCurious in Santa Clara.
Objective of the course is for even inexperienced users to be able to understand the principle of designing and running a standard bioprocess.
Upon completion of the course participants will be able to understand the principles of operation of a lab-scale stirred tank bioreactor.
The course is adopting best practices of the alternative proteins industry.
A basic understanding (high-school level) of biology and chemistry is required as a prerequisite for attendance.
