Upstream and Downstream Processing:
One Common Goal

For over 10 years, the Upstream & Downstream Forum has provided an exciting venue for presentations, networking and discussions focusing on the latest applications and technologies.

The two-day event continues to build the collaborative bridge between Upstream & Downstream Bioprocessing by bringing specialists from your peer group who will share their experience by presenting best practices, applications and techniques to address the bottlenecks at the interfaces of upstream and downstream.
 

Seize the opportunity of this unique venue and book both events as a package.

Don’t miss the opportunity:

  • To hear about case studies in process development
  • To learn about and discuss the latest advances in upstream and downstream processing
  • To interact with biotech professionals in an exciting and interactive venue format
