BioWork 7030: Aseptic Transfers on an Open Bench

BioWork 7030: Aseptic Transfers on an Open Bench

Overview

Transferring sterile liquids or cultures from one container to another is one of the most common tasks you'll perform in biomanufacturing. It's a skill that requires mental focus and attention to detail in order to prevent contamination. Most aseptic work is done under a laminar flow hood or a biological safety cabinet. But in this experiment, we'll practice pipetting and pouring TSB stock on an open workbench.

The BioWork certificate program will teach you the foundational skills you need to begin a career as a process technician for a biotechnology, pharmaceutical, or chemical manufacturing company. BioWork is offered at NC Community Colleges around the state. To find the one nearest you, visit https://ncbionetwork.org/biowork.
