Introduction to Downstream Processing Operations

Course Descriptor

This course is designed to deliver an introduction to the typical downstream operations used in a biopharmaceutical production process. This course includes both hands-on practical and lecture components covering topics such as ultrafiltration/diafiltration, viral clearance and chromatography. During this course trainees will be introduced to the basics of UF/DF and chromatography in a theory session before building on this knowledge and performing these operations using a practical component.
Suitable for: operators, technicians, engineers & managers.

This course is designed for those that are new to downstream processing including operators, technical staff, engineers and managers who need to increase their basic knowledge of actual operations in a modern downstream processing biopharma plant.
