Use of Tangential Flow Filtration in Downstream Processing  (Module 1)

Module 1 focuses on the fundamentals of Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF) and how to optimize its parameters for concentration and diafiltration.

Our face-to-face training consists of two modules which can be booked together or separately, both have theoretical and practical parts.


Due to the tightened measures to contain the coronavirus pandemic and to protect you and our employees from infection, our classroom training courses at our Sartorius Campus in Goettingen are offered conditionally (short-term postponement or cancellation of the event).
