Shake flasks, cell culture dishes, and T-flasks are the first vessels that come to mind when we think about cultivation systems for growing eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells in the lab. Bioreactors and fermenters open up new possibilities and are another alternative to consider if we need larger quantities of cells, increased efficiency of cultivation, or enhanced reproducibility.
Within this webinar, the participants will learn the differences between the cultivation of cells in shakers and bioreactors. We will focus on the basic components of a bioreactor and the various process parameters that can be controlled. Finally, we will focus on different process strategies to further optimize a process and increase.
- Beginners, who consider switching from shake flasks to a bioreactor
- Early bioreactor users, who want to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the possibilities of bioreactors
- Review: Why to switch from shake flasks to stirred-tank bioreactors
- Learn, what are the basic components of a bioreactor
- Learn about the different process parameters that can be monitored and controlled, and what they tell you about your culture.
- Learn about feeding possibilities in shake flasks & bioreactors and their impact on your culture
- Live “Ask the Expert” session – Deepen your knowledge and optimize your process
