Research and process development are key elements in the creation of improved, more rapid, and lower-cost methods for producing bio-based products. Working with small volumes saves valuable resources while industry-standard bioprocess systems deliver the precision required to operate under production-like conditions. Advanced software solutions feature real-time process control as well as comprehensive data and information management. The Quality by Design (QbD) approach and statistic tools such as Design of Experiments (DoE) are effective means for a faster development . Single-use bioreactors further improve turn-around times and simplify validation.
