This half-unit laboratory course provides hands-on experience with many of the techniques and principles taught in the complimentary lecture course, ALS 429. A student cannot take ALS 422 without taking this lecture course at the same time, or at a prior time. It is imperative that students learn about the key scientific, engineering, and practical industrial aspects of the field through the lecture course. If a student takes both ALS 429 and 422, they should not only gain a broad understanding of these key issues, but should also have a certain degree of first hand experience and skill in purifying, concentrating, and formulating biopharmaceuticals at the pilot laboratory scale. PPM students taking this course should, at the same time, take both ALS 429 and ALS 331.
Textbook: None. There will be many handouts and resources posted on Sakai.
ALS 429 (prior or concurrently), ALS 431 and ALS 312
