Scaling cultivations between flask, tube and well-plate platforms is technically challenging. Inconsistent results from one scale to the next can impact decision making and project deadlines. Join us as our international panel of lecturers unravel the complexity of these systems and teach the tools needed to improve results during transitions in scale for shaken cultures.
During two full-day symposia, industry experts will address the following questions in a series of seminars:
- Practicality of various well plate types for screening
- Pros and cons of different well plate and tube options
- Selecting fill volume, shaking diameters and speeds for individual vessels
- Scaling fill volumes, shaking diameters and speeds between vessels
- How baffles impact flask results
- Feeding strategies available for well plates, tubes and flasks
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?
The symposia will be particularly useful to anyone cultivating organisms using shakers. This includes cell biologists, bioengineers, molecular biologists and chemical engineers in research, development or process development roles. No advanced training is necessary. Knowledge about your current cultivation practices and culture needs will be helpful during question and answer periods.
DETAILS: Each symposium will commence with breakfast from 8am - 9am, lectures start at 9am and run through to 4pm with breaks for lunch and coffee. Registration fee is $200.
WHAT IS PROVIDED?
Complete binder of all seminar materials
Certificate of completion issued upon conclusion of each symposium
Continental Breakfast, Lunch and two coffee breaks
1. Cambridge, MA:Tuesday June 21st
2. Durham, NC: Thursday, June 23rd
Co-hosted by Enzyscreen BV, PS Biotech AG and Kuhner Shaker Inc. and including guest speakers.
|Since 2002, Kuhner AG has successfully held courses about cultivation in shaken bioreactors (shake flasks, microtiter plates etc.). We can also provide further education and training for your staff if requested.
Frequently asked questions addressed in our seminars include:
> What are the fermentation conditions in a shake flask/MTP?
> How do I cultivate in a shake flask without oxygen limitation?
> Baffles: yes or no?
> Why doesn’t the scale-up work in stirred bioreactors?
> Which stoppers/adhesive foils are suitable for shake flasks /MTP?
> Why are the fermentation results not reproducible?
These and other issues are discussed and backed up with scientific evidence.
We can also provide seminars on specific themes of your choice.
Should we inform you about new scheduled advanced trainings?
