SKU: IIT Madras | Start Date: December 9 & 10, 2023 Categories: ,


Down stream processing is required to take a crude product from a fermentor or a bioreactor and purify it to the desired level. The workshop covers the design concepts and solving numerical problems pertaining to design, estimating operating conditions and optimisation of various down stream purification steps (unit operations) involved in a biochemical process including cell breakage, adsorption, liquid-liquid extraction, two phase extraction, and chromatography.

This workshop focuses only on solving problems and is suitable for students pursuing their Biotechnology, Bioprocess Engineering, Chemical Engineering  or other allied fields. This course is also suitable for those who are employed  in Biotechnology or Chemical industries.


Session Dates : 9th & 10th December, 2023

Duration : 10:00 a.m. – 01:00 p.m. & 02:00 p.m. – 04:00 p.m.
