10th European Downstream Technology Forum & 4th Upstream Technology Forum Linked Event

Upstream and Downstream Processing: One Common Goal

Successful process optimization in upstream has led to increased cell densities and product titers. But what does this mean for downstream processing and purification of the final drug product?

These modern, intensified production processes are pushing the bottleneck more and more towards downstream. The need to address this has become stronger than ever before.
