BIOT 250 - Principles of Biomanufacturing
An introduction to the process of producing a biological product using a cell line. The course will be organized as a production campaign in a simulated cGMP environment. Students will complete a batch record as they produce a biological product. Emphasis will be on upstream and downstream processes. Hands-on laboratory work will involve the preparation and qualification of growth media and chromatography buffers, the use of bioreactors and FPLC protein purification systems. The role of QA/QC will be discussed. PREREQUISITE(S): BIOT 120 ; BIOT 200 or consent of department. Three hours lecture, three hours laboratory each week. Formerly BT 235.
4 semester hours
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:
- Define the elements of cGMP.
- Explain upstream processing.
- Explain downstream processing.
- Assemble and run growth vessels for insect or mammalian cells.
- Assemble and run protein purification equipment.
