At the Month 30 plenary meeting in Galway, Jelena Ochs of Fraunhofer IPT provided an exciting update on several aspects of the AUTOSTEM Cell Production Pipeline. Jelena reported that the architecture and engineering components to the platform that are completed include:
- Hardware integration and the assembly of the platform
- A build-up of the electrical cabinet and wiring of the components
- Pinning down of the bioreactor-processes – seeding and expansion
In the remaining months of the project, work at IPT will shift focus to the automation of the hardware, the programming of the software agents for the integration framework and the plans for bioprocess implementation in the entire closed system.
