This course can count toward your Professional Certificate in Biomanufacturing Science.

Why should you attend?

A well-packed chromatography column is critical to chromatographic separations. Low quality chromatography column packing leads to uneven mobile phase distribution and poor resin contacting ultimately leading to lower yields, less separation and reduced product quality. This course is designed to explain and demonstrate the factors that influence column packing from both a theoretical and hands-on perspective.

Attend and you will learn

  • Fluid mechanics of flow in packed beds
  • Theoretical basis of mass transfer in packed beds
  • The effects of incompressible versus compressible chromatography resin
  • Different packing techniques
  • Analytical methods for determining column packing quality
  • Packing parameter selection to ensure a robust, reproducible packing procedure

Who should attend

  • Production personnel responsible for column packing, writing packing procedures, and addressing column performance issues
  • Manufacturing science/technical services personnel responsible for writing packing procedures and addressing column performance issues
  • Process development scientists and engineers responsible for developing chromatography packing procedures or working with chromatographic columns at bench- and pilot-scale
  • Systems engineers interested in the design and handling aspects of columns based on production operations

Attend and you will receive

  • 18.5 hours of instruction (1.8 Continuing Education Units)
  • Morning coffee
  • Lunch
  • Afternoon beverage break
  • Certificate of attendance

Instructors

This course is taught by BTEC's bioprocess scientists, and BTEC operations staff provide laboratory support during the course.
