Fast and Effective Cell Culture Media Development Using Design of Experiment (DoE)

Tuesday, February 8, 2011
11:30 am – 1:30 pm EST


Course Description:

This course provides practical advice for the application of Design of Experiment (DoE) as a tool in culture media development.  Cell culture media is comprised of over 50 active ingredients that can have strong interactions making the ratios of component concentrations to each other a critical aspect of optimization.  DoE offers the ability to effectively develop culture media in few experiments that allows achievement of high performance in short timeframes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Introduction to Design of Experiment
  • Types of DoE Experiments for Media Development
  • Importance of Design Space for DoE Success
  • Project Management to Maximize Effectiveness of DoE
  • Media Development using DoE – A Case Study


Who Should Attend:

  • Media Development Scientists
  • Process Development Engineers
  • Process Development Managers and Supervisors
