This book is a guide for engineers and designers new to the field of bio-pharmaceutical process control. For the experienced automation professional, this book outlines the unique design and application issues for the bio-pharmaceutical industry. For those already familiar with this industry, the book provides specific advice for automating these processes. The major topics include: -Background on bio-pharmaceutical industry, economics, and processes -Selection of instrumentation, valves, and hardware -Automation applications -Batch process control -Process Analytical Technology (PAT) -Regulatory and validation concerns -Advanced technology applications In each section, the authors have included theory, practice, and practical insights into the design and application of automation for the bio-pharmaceutical industry. This book will help the engineer or designer build upon the experience of others, avoid costly design mistakes, and improve process control performance.If done manually, an operatora#39;s job is to monitor the cell mass in the seed/bump tank, for example, by taking manual samples of the broth and doing an off-line spin solids test. When the cell mass approaches a pre-determined target value, theanbsp;...
