The advanced chem­istry course of the grad­u­at­ing class of the Gym­na­si­um Neufeld in Bern/Switzerland vis­it­ed our R&D facil­i­ties this Wednes­day. The inter­est­ed stu­dents were intro­duced into the basics of indus­tri­al biotech­no­log­i­cal process­es as well as the chal­lenges of their scal­ing towards indus­tri­al rel­e­vance. In addi­tion, the stu­dents got a first impres­sion of typ­i­cal process­es in the chem­i­cal and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal indus­try. We wish the stu­dents lots of suc­cess in their upcom­ing finals and fur­ther edu­ca­tion.
