Regulatory Affairs and Safety in Biotechnology
Art Vorlesung/Übung
Nr. M+V582
SWS 2.0

Students get to know the procedures and suppositions for working in the field of biotechnology, concerning regulatory affairs, biosafety and QM.

  • Biotechnology and Regulatory affairs I
  • Regulatory affairs II
  • Biosafety
  • QM in the industrial communityB


Students will be introduced in the different areas of biotechnologies. Within this for designing biodevices or executing procedures for bioanalysis, nowadays an enlarged understanding for regulatory affairs, IVD (in-vitro diagnostic) guidelines is getting mandatory. In addition to that aspects to biosafety and overall quality management has to be considered for commercial bioengineering.
