This text details the relationship between membrane technology and bioprocesses, discussing applications. This second edition refines and optimizes key features of the first edition - and features new illustrative case studies. The book examines advantages and disadvantages of using standard and new membrane technologies; analyzes a wide range of applications, including cell culture harvesting and product and process validation techniques; and more.
