Allmänt
Syfte
  • The aim of the course is to provide experience of a full production and evaluation cycle of a probiotic Lactobacillus reuteri strain.
Innehåll
  • This course is primarily designed for PhD students in Food and Formulation engineering and in Applied Microbiology. Particularly for students involved in projects related to Lacobacillus reuteri.
    Topics – Fermentation of Lactobacillus reuteri with the aim of producing cells. Evaluation of cell growth and cell condition. Freeze drying with an embedding matrix. Evaluation of the freeze drying involving methodologies for material testing. Evaluation of probiotic functionality of freeze-dried bacterial cells using various biological assays.
Kunskap och förståelse
  • För godkänd kurs skall doktoranden
  • Understand the basic principles of fermentation, freeze drying and biological assays for evaluation of probiotic efficiencies.
    Understand the principles of the various analytical evaluation systems that are applied.
    Understand the relationships the three steps: fermentation, freeze drying and biological evaluation.
Färdighet och förmåga
  • För godkänd kurs skall doktoranden
  • Quantitatively and qualitatively evaluate a full production sequence of a Lactobacillus reuteri product.
    Be able to evaluate the success of the operational steps of the production of probiotic by using and interpreting key techniques (flow cytometry and biological assays).
    Develop and improve the standard operational procedures (SOPs) used in a production and evaluation sequence.
Värderingsförmåga och förhållningssätt
  • För godkänd kurs skall doktoranden
  • Be able to critically analyse experimental results from the evaluation of a production of probiotics.
    Independently discuss the quality of the operations in the processing and evaluation chain and from this evaluation identify critical points as well as suggest improvements of the procedures and instructions.
Undervisningsformer
  • Projekt
  • Practicals by following one cell production, freeze drying and probiotic evaluation cycle.
Examinationsformer
  • övrigt
  • Written material in form of an evaluation report of the production and suggestions to established or revised SOPs.
  • Underkänd, godkänd
Förkunskapskrav
  • The student should be PhD student at in a relevant area.
Förutsatta förkunskaper
  • Required prior knowledge. The students are assumed to have basic knowledge in microbiology in general and in probiotics in particular.
Urvalskriterier
  • Students within the BCC program are prioritized.
