Levitronix Bioprocessing Conference

Access Leading Bioprocessing

June 18, 2020 // Hotel Royal Sonesta Boston // Cambridge, MA, USA

Rapid progress in biotechnology and the ever-increasing complexity of medicines presents bioprocessing with significant challenges. Novel technologies such as single-use and continuous manufacturing are revolutionizing industry processes.

We at Levitronix believe that impactful bioprocessing can only be achieved if end-users, system-, and components suppliers work together. The Levitronix Bioprocessing Conference brings industry professionals together to make a change.
