MBI® Modular Training

Purolite Life Sciences has partnered with UCL for their accredited short courses in bioprocessing - the award winning Modular Training for the Bioprocess Industries Programme (MBI®).  These comprise of a series of designed and delivered modules in collaboration with 70 international industrial experts.  This collaboration and access to the latest research and experience in the industry make this programme both unique and highly relevant to individuals in the bioprocess industry. The MBI® program is designed for flexible learning; modules can be taken as standalone short courses or combined for Certificate, Diploma or Masters qualifications.

Please find below a list of courses recommended by Purolite Life Sciences.  Discounted courses are available upon quoting ‘Purolite-MBI’.

DOWNSTREAM PROCESSING: CHROMATOGRAPHY

Learn the most suitable purification operation for your process and find out about new technologies on the horizon.

This module focuses on product purification and, through a series of lectures, case studies and a pilot plant session, will enable you to:

  • Understand the principles of  different methods of  process chromatography, including Packed Bed, Monoliths, Expanded Bed.
  • Select the appropriate media for, and predict the performance of, chromatography separations upon scale-up.
  • Assess the suitability of  affinity separation as a product purification operation and gain awareness of  advances in rational ligand design for difficult separations.
  • Determine appropriate strategies for the maintenance of  column and process hygiene.
  • Consider how chromatography is changing at industrial scale, and which new technologies will have an impact in the future.

​ANALYTICAL DATA ANALYSIS FOR THE BIOPROCESSING INDUSTRY

Understand how to manage analytical data and its relevance on the process and product. 

The module explores risk based decision making for bioprocess analytics by considering why a measurement is being made and what it conveys with regard to product critical quality attributes

Expert lectures supported by a series of workshops and case studies will enable you to:

  • ​Gain deeper understanding of  how and why measurements are made.
  • Use statistical methods to assess the validity of  data and its impact on critical product quality attributes
  • Empower you to make a greater impact in the practical aspects and to be a more effective member of  an interdisciplinary development or manufacturing team.
  • Explore best practice in team working exercises and in numerical analysis of  case studies.

​​QUALITY BY DESIGN FOR EFFECTIVE BIOPROCESS CHARACTERISATION AND VALIDATION

Get expert guidance on choosing on how best to integrate QbD, DoE and PAT into lifecycle approach to process characterisation.

A series of stimulating interactive lectures from experts in the field and teamwork activities will enable you to:

  • Learn about the latest FDA and EMEA regulations with regards to QbD, PAT, process characterisation and validation.
  • Understand current and future perspectives of  the impact of  QbD and PAT on the effort required for process characterisation.
  • Learn how to perform Risk Assessments to determine Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs) and Critical Process Parameters (CPPs).
  • See examples of  how to combine scale-down models with historical knowledge and DoE to map out Design Space.
  • Understand the principles behind the characterisation and validation of  unit operations, such as fermentation, filtration, chromatography, formulation through to supply chain logistics.
  • Learn how to apply QbD to continuous operations, e.g. perfusion culture and filtration operations.
  • Explore the impact of  single-use components on validation needs.
  • Apply QbD when implementing pre/post-approval process changes.
