Bioprocess Capital Costs - for biologists

Discussion of biotechnology capital costs is often a controversial topic, on par with discussing politics at the Thanksgiving dinner table; why the facilities are so expensive and a disbelief of the forecasted costs.  As a seasoned veteran in the battle, trust me when I tell you that the cost of a fully-constructed industrial biotechnology facility will be about 3 times the purchase cost of the major equipment.  Similar to election day, just because the estimate is not the desired outcome, does not mean it is not reality.
