With our Fast Trak education, you can access application training in specialized bioprocessing techniques. The courses provide a tangible learning experience for process development and manufacturing scientists, relevant to everyday work.
"We offer courses on some of the more cutting edge ways to approach process development such as the High Throughput Process Development Course. We see a lot of customers who come to us trying to select their resins, they are asking from all these resins that we have how do we even begin to approach process development. We teach customers how to work in high throughput 96 well plate formats which are really powerful and allow them to simultaneously screen through a lot of resins and a lot of buffering conditions."
"The infrastructure in the training was very intuitive and insightful. The equipment is phenomenal, I really enjoyed the class. I am going to take a lot of these techniques that I learned back with me to the plant and work with our technical and PD groups. The key takeaway from COL1 is how to properly pack a column, how to use the instrumentation and equipment that’s available to us and how to implement those back at our facility."
"I hoped to get out of the course column packing and qualification techniques, but also get to use that equipment to apply that theory in a practical application with hands on experience offline so not to interrupt manufacturing at our site. The overall experience of the trainers and the facilities was fantastic. We got to see a lot of different pieces from old to brand new. The instructors were incredibly knowledgeable, they answered almost every single question that we could come up with."
"I learned how you can use mathematical calculations, formulas and diagrams to scale up to a manufacturing column or scale down a PD column with the same resin type with the same size. The equipment here is state of the art, latest and greatest available to us in the industry and makes our jobs a lot easier in using the equipment. It reduces human error which is fantastic and you need that reproducibility every time to be the same."
"Most often customer come to us they realize the importance of multi modal chromatography. They enjoy learning this technique, wherein you make use of different characteristics of your protein and separate your protein based on two or three different aspects and they learn new tools such as high throughput process development and how they can use these techniques to develop a process faster and better."
"One challenge that customers are facing is the scaling up of upstream processes which is non linear and the cells are also non linear in their behavior, so this combined can provide an increased challenge when scaling up. Customers attending an upstream course at Fast Trak can expect to be trained on the GE equipment but also on best practices for process control in upstream work. We teach all the peripherals needed to conduct upstream process development, including metabolism rate calculations and how these relate to a successful culture maintenance."
Course facilities are located across the world. They are equipped with teaching labs furnished with our latest products and equipment. The Fast Trak regional centers are located in the USA, Sweden, Korea, India, and China. Satellite centers are found in Turkey, Germany, Japan, and Singapore.
