Students get to try out advanced bioprocess technologies at the Testa Center


During the spring semester, groups of students from Uppsala University had the chance to utilise the Testa Center at GE Healthcare’s facility as part of their courses. The students spent their last lab day of the course Protein Biotechnology purifying proteins and gave the innovation centre a big tick of approval.

Since the opening of the Testa Center in the Uppsala suburb of Boländerna in August 2018, a number of course activities have been conducted in this 2,500 square metre building. Molecular Biotechnology students have been the main group to access the four bioprocess laboratories for the production of biopharmaceuticals (also known as biological medical products or biologics). Other students in computer science have worked with digital technologies such as smartglasses, which are better able to register and document advanced lab experiments.
