Not dead. Shocker, I'm sure.
So. I have this ridiculous project for school, in which I am to put together a business plan for a pretend product, and take it from a lab scale to a pilot size project. It doesn't sound bad on the surface, but right now we are putting together a budget for our equipment, and I can't find what I'm looking for on the internet, which means I will probably have to call all these places and say "ok, I have this stupid school project and I need to you tell me the cost of your bioreactor/feed system/whatever" My partner has done jack all for part of her section, and I'm tempted just to email my professor and say "look. This is my section. This is her section. I am not doing her work, because I do not have time, and quite frankly, do not care" Right now I'm pissed off, and I'm tired, we aren't doing my idea for this stupid project (it's my partner's idea) so I don't care much about the subject. I'm just so frustrated, and our professor isn't much help.
If anyone knows how much it would cost for a 500 L bioreactor for mammalian cells (fed batch, suspension culture, quite frankly I don't even care just get me a quote), and a pilot size ultrafiltration unit I would be grateful if you told me. Right now I am sort of looking at this
one. I have no idea when I'm going to have time to call, unless they have someone available on weekends.
This is so stupid.
