2. Laupheimer Zelltage Attracts Top Scientists to Discuss Recent Advances in Biomanufacturing

Rentschler has seen participation at this conference nearly triple since inaugural event in 2010

(PresseBox) (Laupheim, ) Rentschler, a leading CMO for the development and production of biopharmaceuticals, has hosted its second Laupheimer Zelltage conference with the theme 'Bioprocess light' on June 11 and 12, 2012 in Laupheim, Germany. Over 190 leading scientists from industry and academia shared their ideas on strategies to facilitate processes and implement lean biomanufacturing principles aimed at generating superior, economical, robust, and competitive processes. Download the conference report and the abstracts of the presentations.

The symposium program consisted of three sessions focusing on New Targets for Animal Cell Technology', 'The Efficient Process' and 'Cutting-Edge Technologies'. The lectures included a wide range of topics such as predicting cell line productivity, the advantage of pre-developed producer cells, key components of chemically defined cell culture media, and novel disposable and process intensification technologies. Thus, these presentations helped forge a link between cell line development and production.

"Contract manufacturers are pushed towards continuously improving processes and the two-day event was full of inspiring lectures and discussions on new strategies and technologies to enhance quality, efficiency and process robustness," said Prof. Roland Wagner, Senior Vice President Development at Rentschler. "Besides process optimization, there is a clearly visible trend towards flexible multiproduct manufacturing facilities to reduce the cost of goods, significantly lower initial capital investments, and increase plant capacity."

The Laupheimer Zelltage conferences on industrial cell culture technology are carried out in a biennial rhythm. The next conference in June 2014 will be on Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products and is entitled "Processes for ATMPs'.
