Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 3rd Annual
Advances in Purification Technologies
Part of CHI's Ninth Annual The Bioprocessing Summit
August 23 - 24, 2017 | Westin Copley Place | Boston, MA

Downstream processing is an area ripe for technology innovations. With higher upstream titers creating bottlenecks in downstream, and high cost of proteinA resins, the downstream steps are not only cumbersome, but also inefficient and costly. With single-use technologies and continuous processing making headways into downstream processing and offering cost-savings, higher productivity gains and faster turnarounds, companies are now looking for alternative technologies that can further revolutionize the downstream industry. These include alternatives to proteinA, alternatives to cell culture clarification, membrane filtration technologies, depth filtration, new adsorbents, novel precipitation and flocculation techniques, etc.

CHI’s 3rd Annual Advances in Purification Technologies invites scientists who are exploring these alternative techniques to share their experiences, discuss their goals and gains, as well as offer advice on challenges to overcome and pitfalls to avoid.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Purification Strategies and Solutions for Next-Generation Antibodies, Non-Antibodies, Gene- and Virus-based Therapies etc.
    • Fusion proteins, antibody fragments, gene therapies, virus and vaccine therapies, etc.
  • Current and Emerging Technology Improvements in Downstream Processing
    • Alternatives to cell removal - magnetic beads, accoustic separation etc.
    • Buffer concentrates
    • Precipitation and flocculation techniques as an alternative for improve filter capacity in the clarification of high cell density cultures
    • Alternatives to proteinA
      • Resins with higher capacity, high resolution and high flow-rate
      • Cation-exchange chromatography (CEX) resins
      • Mixed-mode resins
    • New membrane adsorber technologies
    • Use of activated carbon as an adsorbent in polishing step
    • Disposable Prepacked columns
  • Advances in Chromatography
    • Multimodal chromatography
    • Non-chromatographic separations
    • Continuous chromatography
    • Non-chromatographic separations
  • Continuous/Semi-Continuous/Connected Processing 

If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here to submit an abstract. Remember to specify the conference that you are interested in and please provide your full contact information.

The deadline for submission is February 17, 2017.

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academia. Additionally, vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
