Modern bioprocess development includes extensive screening tasks, but many tools tackling the resulting combinatorial explosion do not provide production scale relevant conditions. Thus, novel technologies are needed for scalable data acquisition via incorporation of miniaturization, automation and digitalization. The Microbial Bioprocess Lab–a Helmholtz Innovation Lab strives at designing such disruptive technologies and to catalyze their translation from science into industrial application.
