Key challenges and potential solutions for eliminating bottlenecks and optimizing biopharma downstream processesRegister & watch
Finding efficiencies across downstream processing steps and cost-effectively aligning the productivity of downstream production with upstream yields require complex analysis and optimisation.
This presentation elaborates on the key aspects of downstream processing, looking at different areas where improvements by new techniques and new technologies could be made, from current process chromatography technologies, new powder and liquid handling strategies to raw material data analysis.
This presentation was given during Bioprocessing Summit Virtual, March 16–17, 2021.
