The Department of biotechnology is initiator of the network BioProScale (www.bioproscale.eu) and organizer of the international BioProScale Symposium. It has four laboratories (process – and system biotechnology, high throughput screening, raw processing, Molecular Engineering), equipped according to the modern State. In the Autobio project Department in addition to the project coordination including takes over the programming of the modules for automated bio process development on high throughput robots under integration of enzyme-based fed-batch technology by BioSilta. In addition, the Department supports the project partners infoteam integration of communication of a database system with Hardware and software modules of the high-throughput platform and cooperates with the project partners, Organobalance in establishing method on the high throughput platform of the subject matter. As a partner in the Autobio project Bioprocess Engineering Department further developed its high throughput laboratory, which stands for cooperations with research partners, and in particular for cooperation with smaller firms available. The high throughput laboratory cannot accept thus more complex development tasks for the industry. Own projects competently and efficiently can be transferred from the research in the pilot phase.
Another goal is in the AutoBio project achieved competencies in the future as a service provider for the development of bioprocesses for industry to offer. Department of Bioprocess Engineering, TU Berlin: project post of the Division of measurement and control technology the TU Berlin in detail: the FG measuring and control technology working for more than 15 years intensively on the automation of individual work steps in model-based process planning, monitoring and Regulation in the field of biotechnology. As one of world’s very few regulatory institutions, the Department for this purpose operates own bio labs. This was a process control system with the most advanced process monitoring in recent years, optimierungs – and control procedures. The findings are to be incorporated in the software environment, infoteam is developed by the company. A further focal point of recent years is located in data-driven automatic modelling for the optimization-based model-based process guidance. The experience should be used in the AutoBio project to promote the establishment of process models of studies on a miniature scale, and thus the applications of modern model-based methods to allow, as is required, for example, for the scale-up on larger scales. In addition to the potential for process optimization is thus also reducing the bio process development in the Center. Together with the partners solutions are to be found which allow the developed methods automated modelling and model-based process monitoring and control as to develop user-friendly software.
