Kuhner Switzerland (Headquarters)

Seminar on March 7th, 2023 at Kuhner headquarters in Basel: Scientific and practical aspects of orbital shaking in biology. Register now!

from 07.03.2023
Birsfelden, Switzerland

Shaken bioreactors such as shake flasks and microtiter plates are applied in enormous numbers in many fields of biotechnological and pharmaceutical research, and now gain even more attention due to the introduction of new types of shaken bioreactors e.g., shaken multi-cubic meter vessels.

Although shaken bioreactors have been applied for decades in important fields such as screening for better production strains, media optimization, pre-cultivation etc., the knowledge on the correlation between cultivation conditions and certain process parameters is often limited.
As a result, questions such as the following may come up:

  • The scale-up of my bioprocess from shake flask to stirred tank bioreactor vessel is not successful. Why?
  • How do baffles, volume, shaking diameter, stopper, well geometry … influence my culture
  • My results gained in shaken bioreactors are not reproducible. Why?
  • How should I shake my microtiter plate?
  • How can I simulate a large-scale fed-batch process in small-scale?
  • How should I shake my cell culture?

During the advanced seminar, many examples and scientific data addressing the above questions will be presented. The attendees will learn how to use shake flasks / microtiter plates in such a way that poor cultivation conditions are avoided. Thus, the seminar will lead to a higher reproducibility of experimental data, to a more successful scale-up into the stirred bioreactor and to optimized screening conditions.

We are looking forward to meeting you at this advanced seminar at the Kuhner headquarter in Basel!
