UCL Biochemical Engineering and GE Healthcare have been working closely together in a number of ways thanks to the drive and enthusiasm of UCL EngD alumnus, Dr Naveraj Gill, who is now a ReadyToProcess Product Specialist within GE Healthcare.
• The siting of GE’s ‘Ready to Rock’ Truck on Malet Place on the 23-25th May. This enabled VISION Core Course delegates, members of the EPSRC Centre for Emergent Macromolecular Therapies and the department’s EngD/ PhD students and academic staff to see in action the company’s Plug & Play biomanufacturing with ReadyToProcess™ technologies.
• The Department also played host the a Microcarrier User Day on the 11th June. This workshop, that made use of our Pilot Plant facilities, provided selected postgraduates and a industrialists an opportunity to gain further insight into the use of microcarriers for cell culture processes in single-use bioreactors. It comprised of a series of presentations with case study examples and a live demonstration of microcarrier preparation for use with the WAVE™ bioreactor system.
• Guenter Jagschies gave an illuminating VISION briefing as part of an MBI Module. The briefing was entitled: ‘Managing Manufacturing Economics: Reality or Perception’
and he addressed the drivers of economic efficiency in manufacturing with the view to identifying the “sweet spot” in the equation.
