The UW Bothell Division of Physical Sciences and Bio-Rad Laboratories invite you to attend the Downstream Purification Symposium. This symposium will provide an interactive discussion of new developments in purification from capture to polishing of biomolecules. Join us and key industry leaders as we discuss unpublished data and novel technologies to advance downstream processing.

  • Listen to case studies in process development with focus on mixed-mode chromatography to purify viruses,  mAb, and aggregate removal.
  • Learn about new chromatography functionalities for purification.
  • Collaborate with industry professionals and discuss current separation challenges.
  • Submit a poster abstract and participate in the poster session.
