Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 8th Annual
Protein Purification and Recovery
Streamlining Processes with Innovative Technologies
January 19-20, 2016

Protein purification is the most costly and time-consuming process in the manufacturing of proteins. Challenges are multiplied when purifying complex molecules, such as membrane proteins, bispecifics and antibody-drug conjugates. The Protein Purification and Recovery conference explores how experts are optimizing processes to achieve pure protein while curtailing cost and time. Along with innovating “traditional” technologies such as Protein A and chromatography, leaders also address alternatives and breakthroughs, such as continuous processing. This leading purification meeting includes a highlighted session focused on purifying membrane proteins, and addresses optimizing processes to ensure purity and quality.
