1 Day Course  |  8:00am to 4:00pm  |  Kingston, RI

Study theories and practices


Learn advanced purification methods


Use cutting edge technologies

    Chromatography plays a major role in pharmaceutical research, helping ensure safe product manufacturing as the process allows lab technicians to separate mixtures into their purest state. It can also aid in discovering new medicines and improving existing medicines. This course will help individuals understand chromatography processes and uses to advance their careers.

    It can also be customized for a corporate workforce, tailored to your company’s quality and compliance standards and delivered exclusively to your employees.

    Participants will learn about the principles and practices of current chromatography methods used for advanced downstream refinement of therapeutic proteins in the biopharmaceutical industry. Theories and best practices, critical for success in industrial chromatography, are presented including resin and column choices, as well as column packing and final protein purification.


    • Gain knowledge and training in advanced protein purification methods using instrumentation such as high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
    • Learn cutting edge technologies that are used in the biopharmaceutical industry to refine crude therapeutic proteins into patient-ready medicines.
    • Gain knowledge and understanding beyond basic downstream Protein A purification methods, including discussions of next-generation technologies in downstream processing.
