Aimed at the current workforce within the advanced therapies and vaccine manufacturing industry, academics and those enrolled in Further and Higher Education, these hands-on training provide basic, practical training in sterile manufacturing within a cleanroom environment, plus an introduction to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) training within an industrial setting.

The topics covered will include gowning and cleanroom behaviour, environmental monitoring and control, aseptic cell processing, and analytical techniques. UK companies involved in the vaccine manufacturing and advanced therapy industry will be able to train their staff ensuring they are well versed in such essential skills prior to entering a GMP manufacturing establishment.
