Features of Bisep
Domain : Fermentation & Bioprocess
In Karnataka fermentation market has been growing rapidly from last ten years due to great demand for fermentation chemicals (alcohols, organic acids, enzymes & others) in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food & beverage industries. High industrialization rate in emerging economies such as China, India, South Korea, Mexico etc is anticipated to be responsible for huge market growth. Potentiality of fermentation industry lies within Inter relationship between technology, market developments, strategies of producers and particularly raw material supply. Understanding such interrelationship is essential in comprehending the future development of the Fermentation industry. Fermentation and Bioprocessing domain deals with the production of therapeutic proteins on using different expression systems as well as high cell density fermentation including media selection, preparation and sterilization, fermenter functional design, sterilization in place and sterilization process validation, fermenter inoculation and maintenance of different fermentation parameters, scale up of fermentation process, fermenter harvest and cleaning process validation. For animal cell culture, media preparation and sterilization by filtration, sub-culturing, suspension culture and monitoring, monitoring of bioreactor cultures. In downstream processing, familiarization with chromatography equipment, column packing methods, column equilibration, and operation of tangential flow filtration as well as its cleaning and sanitation, dead end filtration will also be part of the curriculum. In addition, regulatory requirements of different countries and CGMP requirements for the production area of biopharmaceuticals will also be covered.
In the fastest growing biotech industry, biopharmaceuticals consist of about 62% of the $3 billion generated in financial year 2009-10. According to the 9th Biospectrum – ABLE Biotech Industry Survey 2011, the industry has grown by 21.5%, slightly less than $4 billion in financial year 2010-2011. Biopharma industries include Biocon, Serum Institute of India, Panacea Biotech, Reliance Life Sciences, Shantha Biotechniques, Indian Immunologicals, Bharat Biotech, Cadila Health Care, Intervet India, Intas Biopharma, Eli Lilly, Hafkine Biopharma, Glaxo Smith Kline, Novo Nordisk, etc.
