There is a lot that can go wrong in the bioseparations processes

used for bioproducts in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and food industries. Perhaps you’ve already experienced some of these problems firsthand through your involvement in the design, development and operation of bioseparations processes. Join bioseparations expert Roger Harrison and gain a solid understanding of the principles, applications and scale-up of bioseparations processes and how to apply them.  

Make better decisions

In two days, you’ll learn the most important unit operations in industrial bioseparation processes and how to avoid mistakes when analyzing and interpreting bioseparation data. You’ll also learn how to select appropriate bioseparation equipment and techniques for successful scale-up bioseparation methods. Plus, you’ll get up-to-date on a wide range of other relevant topics from filtration and extraction to chromatography and adsorption, and drying. By the end of the course, you’ll have a new understanding of the principles of bioseparations processes and how to apply them in your day-to-day work. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • List the basic science and mechanisms of various types of bioseparations.

  • Assess the biological activity and purity of bioproducts.

  • Identify the correct laboratory methods for solving biological activity.

  • Arrange engineering analyses of bioseparation processes.

  • Estimate scale-up calculations for bioseparation equipment.
