6805010 Bioseparation 3.0 3
Description A chief characteristic of biotechnology is the tremendous variety of products which are produced. This diversity of products spawns the broad spectrum of separation methods used. This course introduces bioseparation as four major steps, which occurs sequentially as: (1) removal of insolubles, (2) isolation of products, (3) purification, and (4) polishing. The technologies involved in these four steps are: filtration, centrifugation, adsorption, extraction, chromatography, electrophoresis, precipitation, crystallization, and drying, which will be introduced in this course in detail.
