Hands-on Training on Downstream Bioprocess Development
This hand -on course covers advanced downstream processing design, optimization, and troubleshooting of chromatographic processes. The training is geared towards strategic thinking.
The focus is on design and optimization of critical operating parameters involved in developing a scalable, economic, and robust chromatographic process. Related topics covered include process hygiene, column maintenance routines, and scale-up issues. You will develop a three-step chromatographic process. You will also optimize the process for purity, recovery, and productivity suitable for manufacturing scale. Practical sessions include development of a scalable process for purification of α-glucosidase from cell homogenate of S. cerevisae.
