This two-day seminar will cover the topics of biosafety, genomics and bioinformatics research and development. The first mobile BioSafety Lab in Malaysia located at Malaysia Genome Institute will also be launched during this seminar. Companies and organizations are welcomed to participate in the exhibitions.
Introduction to Protein Chromatography
Date: 19th – 22th April 2016
Fee: RM 2500
This workshop will cover downstream processing techniques suitable for production-scale protein purification, and aspects considered for process development. The main focus is to understand the techniques and parameters governing protein chromatography. Detailed presentations of downstream processing techniques (using crossflow filtration & chromatography) will be provided as well as lectures covering optimization and purification strategies. Scale-up issues, column maintenance and process hygiene are briefly presented to expose participants to the industrial environment and its applications and requirements. During the hands-on session, we will work in small groups and use purification systems to perform the experiments. A variety of chromatography methods, such as ion exchange, hydrophobic interaction, affinity and gel filtration, will be used to separate a target protein from a crude sample.
