Abstract

Microreactors and miniaturized unit operations have changed the paradigm of chemical process development and several reports on industrial implementation show that microscale devices have also moved from laboratories to large scale productions. A holistic approach in process design was introduced and operation windows in chemical processing have been significantly extended by using microflow systems. The benefits of microscale operation have also influenced the design and efficiency of analytical devices used in medicine, biological and (bio)chemical analysis, as well as in process control.On the other hand, introduction of microreactor technology in biotechnology took place on a slower path. However, recent trends in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industry towards continuous and integrated production clearly shows the need to also use micro- and meso-flow systems for bioprocess intensification.The main goal of the series of conferences on the implementation of microreactor technology in biotechnology (IMTB) is to promote the introduction of this sustainable technology in bioprocessing. The conferences aim to provide a platform for people from industry and academia, working in the cross-section of microfluidics, life science, analytics and bioprocess engineering. The interdisciplinary feature of the IMTB conferences enables participants to present and discuss their latest results, developments and strategies within
