The DECHEMA expert committee meets in Basel

Dechema

The DECHEMA expert committee meeting „Single-Use-Technology in biopharmaceutical production“ took place last October in Basel.  The host were this time Celonic AG and Kühner AG. The two-day meeting began at Celonic AG. Celonic AG offered a tour through their laboratories and an aperitif. In the evening the 44 participants enjoyed a sightseeing tour through Basel and had the opportunity to network during a dinner.

The next day the group gathered at the Kühner AG. A presentation about Kühner AG opened the meeting. Thereafter it was discussed and worked intensively in the groups “Leachables and extractables”, ”Characterization of single-use-bioreactors”, “Single-use-bioreactors for microbial applications” and “Facilities of the future”. A company tour and a light meal ended the program.

Since the last five years, Single-Use Systems for Up- and Downstream processing in the production of biopharmaceutics gained importance. The DECHEMA founded in 2010 a working group “Single-Use-Technologies in the biopharmaceutical production” which includes all activities in the field of single-use technology in research, production line and application and on this basis generates a status paper to the actual scientific and technical state of knowledge. Since this area of research has become future-oriented the working group was transformed into an expert committee in 2014.
