The BioProScale Symposium 2021 is targeted at experts from industry and academia involved in bioprocess development, scale up and scale down for the production of pharmaceuticals, bulk and fine chemicals, food and feed; providers of sensors for process monitoring, software tools, lab automation and (single-use) bioreactor systems; people who deal with questions about feedstock flexibility, circular bioeconomy, sustainability of bioproduction.
Consistent development of new bioprocesses needs to be performed at the perspective of the final process scale. Therefore an efficient bioprocess development should consider large scale effects and integrate them from early stages onwards together with PAT and QbD. This is one important aim of the network Bio-PAT.
In 2018, 260 participants from different countries, over 70 presentations, 50 Posters und 18 exhibitors wer registered. We are looking forward to achieve these numbers again with the new virtual format. Bio-PAT itself and the following members will be present on the BioProScale Symposium 2021 with their own booth: BlueSens gas sensor GmbH, Celltainer Biosolutions GmbH and Enpresso GmbH.
