Applied Microbiology VO

Lector: Mag.a Dr.in Lisa Kappel

2SWS
2.5ECTS

Lecture contents

Applied microbiology comprises the microbiological laboratory practice, microbiological production processes and the establishment of production services, typically, but not exclusively, on an industrial level.
The lecture deals with the fermentative production of industrial products, such as chemicals, food (additives) and pharmaceuticals. These 'upstream processes' include the planning, set-up and maintenance of the industrial fermentation processes.
This lecture first introduces the basics of microbiological laboratory practice and then focuses primarily on the production of (pharmaceutical) products, but also illuminates the relevant purification (downstream) processes. The students should be familiar with the common industrial technologies for the production of biomass and metabolites, and technological, economic and regulatory requirements will be introduced.
