Production of a recombinant protein in laboratory and pilot scale, modeling of the process.

- Fermentation of a recombinant protein
- Downstream processing using centrifugation, cell homogenisation, filtration methods and chromatographic methods
- Basis experiments will be performed in small scale, based on these experimental data and modelling scale-up experiments will be performed

Previous knowledge expected

Basic knowledge in Bioprocess Engineering and process modelling, microbiology, biochemistry.

Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

After completing the laboratory course students have skills in production and purification of recombinant proteins including modelling of such a process. They know about scale-up strategies and they are able to calculate and estimate most relevant parameters for industrial use of the respective unit operation.
