4 Days of Exciting Science at PREP 2018

Jan 24 2018 Read 972 Times

Join us for four days of exciting science, technology, and education at PREP 2018, the longest running, most recognised international scientific conference and exposition driving the field of Preparative and Process Chromatography, organised by expert scientists and engineers for the separation science practitioner. PREP2018 offers a dynamic and innovative program where world-renowned speakers will address in-depth the latest scientific and technological advances, critical and emerging applications and processes, and challenges and solutions in all aspects of Preparative and Process Chromatography.

Trends that will Impact the Industry

The focus of this conference is the development, design, optimisation, and operation of chromatographic processes and technology for a broad range of applications. The program will be packed with papers on biochromatography, downstream processing, QbD, monoclonal antibodies, plasmids, enzymes, vaccines, viral vectors for gene delivery, VLPs, and other biopharmaceuticals, chiral molecules, SFC, fine chemicals, peptides, proteins, oligonucleotides, APIs, natural products, batch, multi-column and continuous SMB processes, column technology and equipment, monoliths, new and improved stationary phases, membrane chromatography, regulatory aspects, and more!

Emerging Applications and Processes

The Symposium will provide opportunities to present, discuss, and learn about the latest scientific and technological advances in preparative chromatography; to gain an in-depth exposure to the most recent chromatography products and technologies on the market; to obtain training and education to develop and optimise processes and minimise costs in the production of fine chemicals, chiral molecules, natural products, active pharmaceutical ingredients, peptides, oligonucleotides, proteins, monoclonal antibodies, plasmids, vaccines, viral vectors for gene delivery, VLPs and other biopharmaceuticals; and to access a vast network of separation scientists and engineers working on the most relevant process aspects including continuous and integrated manufacturing, process control, and mechanistic modeling.

List of Keynote Sessions

  • Industrial Case Studies in Protein Chromatography
  • Continuous Chromatography for APIs, Fine Chemicals, and Natural Products
  • Continuous Manufacturing and Downstream Processing for Biopharmaceuticals
  • Preparative Chromatography in Drug Discovery, Development, and Manufacture

Great Training Opportunities
