1st Edition

Biotechnology and Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing, Processing, and Preservation

Edited By Kenneth E. Avis, Vincent L. Wu Copyright 1996

    In this unique book, experts describe practices applicable to the large-scale processing of biotechnological products. Beginning with processing and bulk storage preservation techniques, the book provides strategies for improving efficiency of process campaigns of multiple products and manufacturing facilities for such processing techniques. Large-scale chromatography for the purification of biomolecules in manufacturing and lyophilization of protein pharmaceuticals are discussed. Includes a case study on blow-fill-seal processing technology and a chapter on economic and cost factors for bioprocess engineering.
