Cytiva eLearning catalogue now available on the NIBRT Online Academy

DUBLIN, IRELAND, May 20th, 2021 –The National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) is pleased to announce Cytiva’s Fast Trak eLearning catalogue is now available on the award winning NIBRT Online Academy (NOA).  The following Cytiva courses will be available, with additional titles to be launched throughout 2021:

  • Filtration Process Development
  • Understanding Upstream Bioprocessing
  • Understanding Filtration in Bioprocessing
  • Introduction to Preparative Protein Chromatography
  • Biomanufacturing Process Capability Requirements
  • Overview of the Biopharma Industry and Products

For more than two years, Cytiva has partnered with NIBRT to help the biomanufacturing industry keep pace with changing technologies and train the next generation of talent.  The COVID-19 pandemic has made addressing the current and future industry skills gap even more urgent. Recently, Cytiva, along with the Financial Times’ research arm Longitude, compiled a Global Biopharma Resilience Index  that surveyed 1100 industry experts and found that talent, specifically the availability of a skilled workforce, is a major challenge for the industry.

Anne-Cecile Potmans, General Manager, Fast Trak, says: “These eLearning courses will help address the need for continuing education and will bring new talent to the industry. As the biopharma industry continues to grow year-over-year, education and training will be vital to ensuring the industry can meet the global demand for advanced therapeutics.”

Commenting on the announcement, Killian O’Driscoll, Director of Projects, NIBRT remarked: “The NIBRT Online Academy team is delighted to offer Cytiva’s prestigious eLearning catalogue to our clients. Since the launch of NOA just over 12 months ago, the online learning platform has seen over 10,000 enrolments from more than 60 countries.  NOA provides high quality training especially for those clients whose ability to travel may be curtailed by COVID-19 restrictions.”
The NOA provides easy access, immersive and interactive online learning on all aspects of biopharma manufacturing. Since its launch in January 2020, the award winning[1] platform has registered over 10,000 enrolments with a 95% client satisfaction rating in a recent survey of 800 users[2].  New learning material is added on an ongoing basis to provide a best-in-class learning solution.
