Synthetic Biomanufacturing Facility
Located on Utah State University’s Innovation Campus, the USU Synthetic Biomanufacturing Facility is designed and staffed to optimize large-scale development and production of bioproducts and raw cell material. The facility provides production capabilities for university faculty, researchers and students as well as private industries through state-of-the-art equipment and technical support, including a world-class fermentation facility.
A primary purpose of the fermentation lab is to generate substantial quantities of biomolecules for commercialization and scale-up performance evaluation. The capabilities of this facility enable scale-up optimization of fermentation bioproducts that can be grown and analyzed under a variety of growth conditions for maximum product yield and quality. Lab design also allows room to add additional equipment as demand increases.
Available for contract manufacturing and equipment use, the Synthetic Biomanufacturing Facility offers a range of lab to pilot scale fermenters for process development, testing and production. Two New Brunswick BioFlo Pro 400 liter fermentors allow process optimization with a variety of setup options and data collection resources. A 100 liter New Brunswick BioFlo 610 fermentation system, which is also steam-in-place capable and fully automated, is available as a stand-alone or seed reactor. For cell and product recovery, several sizes of centrifuges and tangential flow filtration devices are available. For a complete listing of available equipment, please visit the Synthetic Biomanufacturing Facility website.
