A3 - Basic Course Bioprocess Control

Who should attend: Technicians and scientists working in process development or production 
with a basic knowledge of fermentation and bioreactor technology.

This training delivers basic approaches for a practice-oriented control and automation of biotech processes. You will learn basic process control strategies in bioreactors and their application
by using simulation experiments within a virtual bioreactor.
Saccharomyces cerevisiaeor animal cell cultures will be used as model organisms.


  • Basics of bioprocess control
  • Dynamic behaviour of bioreactors
  • Single-loop control
  • P-, PI- and PID- controller settings
  • Techniques and methods for adjusting P-, PI- and PID- controllers
  • Basics in process control of biological processes

Practical simulation experiments with the virtual training bioreactor:

  • Temperature control
  • Control of pO2 | DO
  • Sterilization cycle with control
  • Process control of biological processes with several controllers

! Optimal ratio of one trainer to two participants, working together on a bioreactor.
