Advancements, Applications and Theory in Downstream Processing

New ideas create improved solutions for downstream processing

The 9th HIC/RPC Bioseparation Conference will be held in Sliema, Malta from March 16-19, 2015, the conference is focused on the better understanding of the hydrophobic nature of biological targets and their chromatographic isolation and purification. The program will emphasize current DSP topics with case studies from leading biopharm manufacturers. As in the previous conferences, we are devoting special attention to fundamentals of hydrophobic and multimodal interactions. We are glad to announce that Prof. Arieh Ben-Naim agreed to give a key note lecture on “Hydrophobic Hydrophilic Phenomena in Aqueous Solutions”.

The exchange of scientific ideas in a collegial atmosphere can create new approaches and solutions for downstream purification steps. From basic theory to industrial scale purification, recognized professionals will share their expertise and experiences on all aspects of chromatographic separation and process design for biomolecules. To encourage young professionals to attend the conference, we have introduced a reduced junior participant fee.

The practical elements of chromatographic development and implementation will be balanced by panel and individual discussions about novel approaches and theories. This combination will lead to a deeper understanding of the hydrophobic molecular interactions affecting chromatographic selectivity and capacity, and the application of this knowledge to
large scale purifications.
