Cologne Technical Center

Asahi Kasei Bioprocess Europe opened the Cologne Technical Center in Cologne, Germany in 2010. We provide extended services and customized training to customers in Europe and around the world.

Our facility

Importance of training


Product quality and safety is the sum of a complex set of variables. While processes can be well defined in SOPs, “human variability” remains a critical factor.

Training courses deepen participant understanding and reinforce techniques for practical application.

Our trainings offer

  • A selection of course modules on various subjects
  • Individual and group instruction
  • Courses in English, German, French or Dutch

Become certified

Participants receive a certificate upon completion of training courses, seminars or lectures. For hands-on courses, certification means that the recipient has passed the course requirements and meets the standards of Asahi Kasei Bioprocess with regard to the operation of filters and equipment.
