Key benefits of this course
- Hands-on practical classes to develop skills for downstream purification filtration and chromatography
- Gain knowledge and understanding of filtration and chromatography principles in downstream process development
- Immerse yourself in a GMP-like cleanroom production environment
- Guidance on how to apply single-use bioprocessing technology to downstream production processes
This three-day course incorporates both theory and practical learning experience by combining the NIBRT industry training curriculum with hands-on, practical sessions from UTS.
You will expand your knowledge on downstream bioprocessing through theory and hands-on practical sessions exploring aseptic connections, a single-use liquid chromatography system and an ultrafiltration/diafiltration system.
You will also have the opportunity to practice key downstream bioprocessing principles and skills by preparing and running designed plot-scale protocols in a GMP-lite environment.
Key topics covered
- Fundamentals of downstream processing for product recovery
- Single-use technologies in downstream processes
- Overview of chromatography
