Downstream Principles and Techniques
UPCOMING CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS: OCTOBER 14-17, 2014. June 23-26, 2015. NOVEMBER 17-21, 2015.
Improve your basic skills in separation and purification of bio-manufactured products. This hands-on training includes theoretical background information on cell harvest and clarification, TFF, and chromatography, including column packing. You will also develop a better understanding of the various protein characteristics and how they affect the purification process, how resins are selected, and how a purification process is developed.
Key Learning Objectives
- Understand the principles of centrifugation and how cell harvesting and clarification is completed
- Understand the principles and applications for depth filtration
- Understand how protein characteristics facilitate the purification process
- Become familiar with the different types of chromatographic processes and the principles behind each type
- Identify the components of a chromatography system and their functions
- Perform column packing and peak evaluation
- Identify the components of a TFF system and their functions
- Understand how viruses are inactivated and removed
- Understand how a purification process is developed
