Facilities and Equipment

Biomanufacturing companies face a unique challenge in training employees while running a busy production line: While employees need to master new techniques or enhance their skills, taking equipment offline for training is cost prohibitive, and the risk of making mistakes during on-the-job learning can be forbidding.

The BETC solves this challenge in labs that are fully equipped to mirror the real-world bioprocessing environment. In our new 10,000-square-foot center, you can explore new processes, train on state-of-the-art equipment and hone your skills. Here, you can take risks, try what-ifs and fully master bioprocessing techniques in an environment that fosters your development.

Our laboratory space features individual rooms—including small-scale labs for upstream and downstream processing and a 200L pilot –scale lab—where you’ll have hours of hands-on training on bioprocessing equipment in a simulated cGMP environment. All the required support functions are performed in additional labs.

The BETC can accommodate up to 20 participants per course, ensuring an in-depth and collaborative learning experience. Contact us to enroll in a course or tailor one to your company’s specific needs. Call +1-508-831-4879 or email betc@wpi.edu.
