Technology Platform moves into Industry Training Curriculum

Mar 23 2020 Read 345 Times

The Jefferson Institute for Bioprocessing (JIB) at Thomas Jefferson University, a leading center for advanced training to the bioprocessing industry, is to integrate  the Gyrolab xPlore™ immunoassay system from Gyros Protein Technologies into its industry training programmes. This provides students on specialist graduate degrees and upcoming PhD programs with hands-on experience and enhanced industry skills, that complement industry training programmes designed for scientists, engineers and technicians.

Gyrolab platforms miniaturise, integrate and automate bioanalytical processes, improving workflow efficiency and reducing risk in bioprocessing. JIB, the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training’s (NIBRT) exclusive North American training partner, is focused on the investment in and training of a new bioprocess engineering workforce and increasing the skills of those in the industry, to support the exponential growth in biopharmaceutical research and development.

Dan Calvo, President of Gyros Protein Technologies AB, said: “While biologics constitute more than 40% of the pharmaceutical industry pipeline, only a few places around the world are dedicated to training the workforce to meet this demand. We are looking forward to working with JIB, a leading specialised training institute in the industry, to integrate Gyrolab technologies within their training programs.”

Dr Parviz Shamlou, Executive Director, Jefferson Institute for Bioprocessing, commented: “It is essential our courses offer students the opportunity to train using technologies at the leading edge of the field. Real world experience of the Gyrolab platform and kits enable our researchers to graduate with advanced skills that add value in the biopharma industry.”
