Stem Cell Therapy is an area of increasing investigation and investment as a treatment option for patients with a previously unmet clinical need.

This training programme, presented as a collaboration between the Centre for Cell Manufacturing Ireland (CCMI) and NIBRT, will cover all aspects of stem cell therapy manufacture.  It will allow trainees to gain hands on experience of cell vial thaw, initial seeding, expansion and cryopreservation as well as the associated equipment required to carry out these tasks.   In addition, trainees will gain insight into the morphology of stem cells and indications of cell culture contamination, allowing them to identify and troubleshoot potential issues.

 

This course is designed for those that have some knowledge of cell culture techniques but would like to specifically learn how stem cell therapy manufacture is conducted.  This course would be ideally suited to graduates with a cell culture background or cell culture technicians from a biologics manufacturing setting.

This two day course provides an introduction to the typical upstream operations carried out in a biopharamaceutical manufacturing facility. This course will include both hands-on practical and theory components. During this course trainees will be introduced to cell culturing techniques using small scale shake flasks. Trainees will then gain hands on practical experience using both stainless steel and disposable bioreactor systems. Trainees will prepare and run a steam in place cycle on a stainless steel bioreactor and then inoculate a production batch into a stainless steel bioreactor.
This course is designed for operators, technical staff, engineers and managers wishing to increase their knowledge of the upstream operations in a modern bioprocessing plant.

This course is designed to deliver an introduction to the typical downstream operations used in a biopharmaceutical production process. This course includes both hands-on practical and lecture components covering topics such as ultrafiltration/diafiltration, viral clearance and chromatography. During this course trainees will be introduced to the basics of UF/DF and chromatography in a theory session before building on this knowledge and performing these operations using a practical component.
Suitable for: operators, technicians, engineers & managers.

This course is designed for those that are new to downstream processing including operators, technical staff, engineers and managers who need to increase their basic knowledge of actual operations in a modern downstream processing biopharma plant.
