TS1: Introduction to Bioprocessing
TS1: バイオプロセシングの紹介

CHI's Introduction to Bioprocessing training seminar offers a comprehensive survey of the steps needed to produce today's complex biopharmaceuticals, from early development through commercial. The seminar begins with a brief introduction to biologic drugs and the aspects of protein science that drive the intricate progression of analytical and process steps that follows. We then step through the stages of bioprocessing, beginning with the development of cell lines and ending at scaling up for commercial production. The seminar also explores emerging process technologies, facility design considerations and the regulatory and quality standards that govern our industry throughout development. The important roles of analytical methods at all stages of development as well as formulation and stability assessments in developing and gaining approval for a biopharmaceutical are also examined. This 1.5-day class is directed to attendees working in any aspect of industry, including scientific, technical, business, marketing or support functions, who would benefit from a detailed overview of this field.

TS2: Design of Experiments (DOE) for Bioprocess Analysis
TS2: バイオプロセス分析の実験計画法

Today, leaders in the biopharmaceutical industry are increasingly adopting Quality by Design (QbD), a systematic approach to development that, starting from predefined requirements, emphasizes the understanding of products and processes, as well as the ability to control them. The effectiveness of QbD is evidenced by its wide application in the pharmaceutical field and beyond. The benefits of QbD can be further enhanced by combining this approach with design of experiments (DoE), a method that helps reduce the cost of acquiring new knowledge through statistically designed experiments. This training seminar will present DoE as a tool to support QbD, focusing on the practical application of DoE methods through the use of lectures, JMP statistical software (SAS Institute) and bioprocess case studies.
Marcello Fidaleo, PhD, PEng, Associate Professor, University of Tuscia

The aim of this 1.5 day training seminar is to provide attendees with an introduction to the Design of Experiments (DoE) methods applied to the analysis and optimization of bioprocesses to support Quality by Design (QbD) studies. It focuses on the application of DoE methods using lectures, JMP statistical software (SAS Institute, NC), and case studies. The case studies focus on microbial fermentation, chromatography, and pharmaceutical product formulation. 

Attendees will receive a practical overview of the following topics: basic statistical concepts for DoE; how to use factorial, fractional factorial, and response surface; how to interpret the output of experimental design software (normal probability, interaction, and contour plots or estimated coefficients tables for factorial or surface response models). 

The course is targeted to all those interested in bioprocess development and optimization, particularly those new to DoE techniques, including bioprocess development scientists and engineers, process validation staff interested in defining operating ranges and attribute specifications, and other professionals who want to learn about DoE.

Attendees are invited to bring their own laptops to get hands-on experience with JMP (it is suggested to pre-install a free 30-day trial downloadable online at, pen, and notepaper.
