Course Description:

This course focuses on the fundamental principles and optimum applied techniques for depth flow filtration (DFF) and tangential flow filtration (TFF) used in biopharmaceutical downstream processes. Choose the course format that’s most useful for you—one day, three days, or a full four days. The one-day lecture is designed to help individuals gain a solid understanding of the parameters and factors that affect DFF and TFF membrane performance and product recovery for both cell clarification and UF/DF biopharmaceutical applications. During the three-day hands-on laboratory workshop, DFF and TFF application trials are performed using state-of-the-art benchtop systems. Data developed during these trials is applied to a real scale-up system problem and SOP. The principles and techniques presented in the prerequisite lecture course are applied in this workshop, which is limited to 12 participants.

This course is designed for engineers, scientists, managers, technical personnel and researchers who require an in-depth review of filtration principles and their application to processes in the areas of process development, manufacturing and quality assurance/ validation.
