This laboratory course provides hands-on experience with many of the techniques and principles taught in the complimentary lecture course, listed in this proposal. A student cannot take ALS 422 without taking this lecture course at the same time, or at a prior time. The experiments are designed to teach the students a broad understanding of these key issues in downstream bio-separation operations including chromatography and tangential flow and depth filtration. Following the course the students will gain a thorough understanding of unit operations downstream of bioreactor.
MEB 311, 312, MEB 313, MEng program students only
- An understanding of the successful, interdisciplinary approach to bioprocessing and bioseparations, involving both biological sciences and engineering
- An understanding of a broad range of analytical methods and the ability to determine assay attributes.
- An understanding of the many unit operations employed in bioseparations, including first-hand laboratory experience with the most common ones
