Community College - Biomanufacturer Partner:Mount Wachusett Community College - BMS


  • Sought NBC2 help from the time there was talk that a biopharmaceutical biomanufacturer was thinking of locating at Devens, MA (old military base).
  • Campus engineer and architect of the proposed biotechnology/biomanufacturing laboratories to GBCC to view set-up for biotech research, development and biomanufacturing.
  • Richard Elmer, Manager of Learning and Development at BMS , to GBCC to see biotech/biomanufacturing facility and discuss NBC2 biomanufacturing hands-on curriculum.
  • Mount Wachusett adopted GBCC biotech/biomanufacturing facility set-up and equipment.
  • Once lab built, adopted NBC2 hands-on biomanufacturing curriculum for first biomanufacturing class in Spring 2009.
  • Mount Wachusett is customizing the NBC2 hands-on laboratory curriculum for second biomanufacturing class this Spring 2010.
  • NBC2 will publish the Mount Wachusett version of the NBC2 hands-on laboratory curriculum at www.lulu.com
  • Mount Wachusett is helping NBC2 evaluate the online Virtual Chromatography Laboratory curriculum to support the actual hands-on NBC2 Chromatography SOPs.

Joe was an apprentice at Lonza in the first year of his Biotechnology Associate’s degree from GBCC in 2008. With 12 credits transferred in from college classes taken in high school (Running Start), he graduated early and worked at Lonza prior to attending UMBC this Fall 2009.



Virtual Chromatography – The Power of Interactive Visualization in Understanding a STEM Field of Study

  • Understanding the physics, chemistry and biology of the chromatographic system and the binding of the protein of interest to the chromatographic matrix or beads (Science)
  • Understanding the design and operation of chromatography components and of the chromatographic process (Technology and Engineering).
  • Understanding the calculations needed to run the chromatographic system (column volume) and the measurements on chromatograms needed to calculate the HETP, number of theoretical plates, retention time, and resolution (Mathematics).

  • Complex System
  • Not easy to ‘see’ interaction of components
  • Students use virtual system to prepare to use actual system
  • Use virtual system for BIOMANonline
  • System same as industrial chromatography skid
