11.07.2011m2p-labs receives Grant for new Fed-Batch Screening Technology
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
sponsors the “Smart Dosing” project for the development of intelligent disposables with 900,000 Euros. The project of the companies, m2p-labs GmbH and CEVEC Pharmaceuticals GmbH as well as the Chair of Biochemical Engineering (Prof. Dr. Jochen Büchs) and the Institute of Technical and Macromolecular Chemistry (Prof. Dr. Andrij Pich) of RWTH Aachen University is sponsored within the framework of the BMBF funding programme “KMU-innovativ: Biotechnologie-BioChance” and is spread over three years. A passive fed-batch technology for targeted limited substrate feeding of cells is to be developed within the scope of this project.

The aim of the project is to make the fed-batch process control, which is proven and frequently used in the industry, already available during screening and the early bioprocess development. This guarantees that the selection of the best producers and process conditions is carried out
under process-simulated conditions, and hence, any wrong decision making is avoided in the early development stage.
