Bioformulation of Microbial Products: The Realities of Scale-Up & Supply Chain on Product Quality

Time: 10:15 am
day: Track B - Day One - Morning


• Translating microbial technologies that work well in a research setting to a commercial product remains challenging
• Bioformulation and delivery of a high concentration of highly viable, fit microbes is central to improving plant colonization and increasing reproducibility in the field
• As production scale gets larger, variations in large vessel conditions used for manufacturing cause microbes to become stressed and less phenotypically and genetically stable
• Innovation in production, formulation, packaging and delivery is needed to improve the quality and efficacy of living microbial products being commercialized
