Scientific Description
The Core Facility "Bioindustrial Pilot Plant" at the Vienna Institute of BioTechnology (VIBT) serves as education, training and test site for modern biotechnology. The focus is primarily on education and research-driven education with emphasis on industrial biotechnology. The plant is provided with a full set of state of the art up- and downstream processing equipment for small and pilot scale production of recombinant proteins covering bacterial, yeast and mammalian expression systems. Main fields are scale up studies, on-line monitoring of bioprocesses, bioprocess engineering of unit operations. Besides education, the plant can be used for industrial cooperations.
