Process control experiment by master students in the Testa Center

Professor Bengt Carlsson reached out to the Testa Center in February 2021 with an ask. “Would it be possible to have students in the Testa Center using bioreactors to learn PID control?” he asked, yes, certainly we said. After two short visits to the laboratory and Bengt and the Testa Center staff prepared the experiment …

How successfully joining forces in advanced bioproduction development represents a major step forward for research and industry

Today it’s not only about drug discovery. Production is also a hot topic, especially finding the ability, knowledge, and competence required to work successfully with advanced bioproduction of biologics in a continuous process. At the Swedish competence centre, AdBIOPRO, research specialists in both upstream and downstream processing from KTH, The Royal Institute of Technology, Lund …

Students prepared for work in bioprocess

Louise Finkit & Therese Koivula

During December 2020, final-year students from Uppsala university learned all about bioprocess optimization for cell growth and purification, and what life is like when you are employed at a bioprocess company. All the students were from Uppsala University’s Master’s program in Molecular Biotechnology Engineering. This project is the main topic for their last course of …
