Biotechnology Plant Design:Biotechnology Plant Design Lab: You need to have knowledge about the different phases of process design from idea to plant understand the methodology for feasibility studies of biotechnological processes be familiar with how technology economy market and legislation interacts in a feasibility study be familiar with the work of a project group including knowledge on some common tools for project management understand the basis for commercialization of business ideas such as market valuation access to IP and financing.Biotechnology Plant DesignThis article presents an idea of the design construction and validation issues to be considered for a GMP Biotechnology Manufacturing facility. Topics to be covered include architectural considerations equipment utilities materials of construction and computerization FDA expectations for biotech manufacturer.It will be handy if you get some short research projects Discussions of current reference articles and case studies.
