Downstream Processing Lab Practical


Downstream processing (also known as DSP) refers to the recovery and purification of a drug substance (DS) from natural sources, such as animal or bacterial cells. It is defined as the unit operations that follow cell growth and expansion; with a purpose to isolate, purify, and concentrate the previously synthesized drug substance or other product from the complex bulk matrix.  In this course, students will learn separation techniques with hands-on experience using a small-scale Akta Prime chromatography system to perform both Anion Exchange and Hydrophobic Interaction Chromatography.
