The Biotechnology Laboratory Sciences Program at Blinn College prepares students with the knowledge and skills for entry level positions within the local and global Biotechnology Laboratory Sciences industry. The curriculum has been designed to familiarize and train students not only in the science of quality control and the manufacturing of biotherapeutics, but also in the compliance requirements that govern the industry. The integration of science and compliance provides the graduating student with the requisite skills sought by startup companies as well as established Biotechnology Laboratory Sciences firms. Course work includes hands-on experience with laboratory systems used in Quality Control as well as manufacturing systems used to produce, recover, and purify biotherapeutic products. In addition, extensive training in Quality Systems and GMP procedures and documentation completes the curriculum. This Program is in the Division of Agricultural and Natural Sciences.
