Day2: Lights, Camera and Action – Upstream in bioreactor with cameras, sample analytics, in-bag sensors, parallel shake flask reactors and in-line mass spectrometry

Day two was when many of the participant’s experiments were going live; Video analysis detection, live process-data streaming from Sweden to the US, in-bag sensors to retrieve data from the bioreactor and in-parallel flask ShakeReactors replicating the bioprocess in small-scale. Everything went according to plan, until we had to reset and start it all over …

Day1: Don’t try this at home, or in GMP (try it at the Testa Challenge!)

Like most systematic approaches, a failing cog, loose wiring or a single broken piece can cause the whole process to come to a halt. The same principle applies to bioprocess manufacturing. Thinking ahead and preparing for many months in advance, we have put several mitigations in place to keep the process going throughout the Testa …
