This course focuses on the priciples of bioseparation processes: cellular fractionation, filtration, chromatography, electrophoresis, immunoaffinity techniques and their application to various types of biomolecules. It includes a hands-on laboratory to separate a target microbially-produced protein by chromatography and assay the purity by electrophoresis.
Biomaterial properties and bioseparation processes that exploit these properties to purify biologically-derived materials.
Learning Outcomes Have an overview of the separation and purification of biological materials.Understand how to exploit biological molecular properties for their separation.Obtain an overview of bioseparation principles to develop bioseparation strategies for complex biological mixtures.Understand and apply the principles of process scale-up in bioseparation processes.Apply optimisation and scale-up principles to design or improve a bioseparation process.
Students must attend one activity from each section.
