Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 5th Annual
Higher-Throughput Protein Purification
Innovating Processes
January 21-22, 2016

High-throughput processes have transformed the traditional protein-by-protein trial-and-error approach for testing criteria and scaling up. In this leading meeting on Higher-Throughput Protein Purification, HTP will be explored in the quest to develop methods that ensure quality and translate to large scale. Automation, robotics and liquid handlers will be discussed, along with developing small-scale models that shed light on bioproduction. Case studies will be presented that illustrate how leaders in the field are integrating HTP approaches in order to reduce the time and effort needed to successfully establish parameters and achieve pure protein.

Please join this in-depth discussion of HTP protein processing.
