Meeting: Small Scale Bio-production: Beyond the Flask

Once you can produce it in a flask, what next? The focus of this meeting will be on techniques for the bioproduction of usable quantities of biologic materials, specifically recombinant proteins, monoclonal antibodies, cytokines viruses and other secreted cellular products from eukaryotic cells.
Topics covered will include expression systems, mammalian vs. insect vs. other, constituitive vs. transient expression, cell culture medium considerations and culture devices for scale-up that can be used in any laboratory. This meeting should show the fastest pathway from discovery to proof of principle and the production of 100 mgs to several grams of product. The meeting has CPD accreditation.
