Bioprocess Monitoring and Control Featured Report
The need for advanced control strategies for bioprocessing and biomanufacturing is growing, and several manufacturers already have leveraged new automation and software solutions for bioprocess monitoring and control. Authors discuss new approaches for process control that make use of increased computational power; advanced sensors, probes, and sampling technologies; and new software systems that can be applied to a wide range of operational modes (e.g., perfusion, continuous, and multicolumn platforms). Such technologies can be applied with single-use systems and within PAT and “machine learning” applications.
