Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering

Housed in the department of Biochemical Engineering, this facility is the result of £20 million of investment from industry, government and various foundations. This hands-on experience is distinctive to UCL and provides firsthand insight of the challenges and excitement of making industrial process work. It provides access to some of the most advanced equipment available today as you would find in many industrial environments.

It houses bioprocessing equipment at a pilot scale, from fermentation through downstream processing to formulation, used by researchers and students to test new processed in an environment like that used by industry.
