7:00 AM
GE Chromatography Column Packing August 12-13
Location:
 
Description:   A well-packed chromatography column is critical to achieving the required purity for a biopharmaceutical product. Poor column packing causes uneven flow in the bed. Uneven flow compromises the chromatographic separation and results in loss of product quality. Unfortunately, as those who work in a downstream manufacturing environment will tell you, column packing can be among their most challenging tasks. This course is designed to help overcome the challenge of column packing by providing hands-on packing experience and equipping you with the information needed to design procedures that ensure you get packing right the first time. This three-day course includes both lecture and hands-on activities taught by experts from GE Healthcare, one of the world’s leading suppliers of chromatography supplies and equipment for the biopharmaceutical industry.
