Cambridge Healthtech Institute ’s 2nd Annual

Advances in Recovery and Purification

20-21 March 2019


Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Advances in Recovery and Purification meeting brings together industry and academia to discuss the latest developments in the capture, recovery and purification of biotherapeutics, with data driven case studies on next-generation technologies and strategies in affinity chromatography, clarification, depth filtration, new membranes, flocculation, as well as DSP strategies for emerging modalities such as gene therapies, ADCs, bispecifics, fusion proteins and antibody fragments. How do your strategies compare?
