Innovations in
Downstream Processing

Join us for a technical seminar bringing together scientists and experts to discuss challenges and solutions for downstream bioprocessing.




Are you experiencing challenges in your downstream process? 

Our half day seminar was developed to bring scientists and experts together in an open and collaborative way to discuss innovations and novelties within the Bioprocess downstream area. In the seminar we will specifically address challenges within downstream processing and what innovations can do to increase speed and improve processes on different levels. 

Topics we will be covering:

  • Implementing intensifications in downstream processing

  • Impact of intensification on product quality

  • Innovations in Protein-A affinity chromatography

  • Novel tools and devices for addressing productivity bottlenecks

  • Platform approaches for non-IgG biologics

This seminar will feature presentations from biopharma companies and other key opinion leaders.

The half day seminar runs from 9.00 -14.00 and lunch is included.
