Based on a training course that teaches the theoretical as well as practical aspects of protein bioseparation to bioprocess professionals, this fully updated and revised new edition offers comprehensive coverage of continuous chromatography and provides readers with many relevant examples from the biopharmaceutical industry.
Divided into two large parts, Protein Chromatography: Process Development and Scale-Up, Second Edition presents all the necessary knowledge for effective process development in chromatographic bioseparation, both on small and large scale. The first part introduces chromatographic theory, including process design principles, to enable the reader to rationalize the set-up of a bioseparation process. The second part illustrates by way of case studies and sample protocols how the theory learned in the first part may be applied to real-life problems. Chapters look at: Downstream Processing of Biotechnology Products; Chromatography Media; Laboratory and Process Columns and Equipment; Adsorption Equilibrium; Rate Processes; and Dynamics of Chromatography Columns. The book closes with chapters on: Effects of Dispersion and Rate Processes on Column Performance; Gradient Elution Chromatography; and Chromatographic Column Design and Optimization.

Giorgio Carta, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville (USA), where his research focuses on transport phenomena and bioseparations. He regularly organizes professional courses on various aspects of bioseparations, including a course on protein chromatography development and scale-up together with Alois Jungbauer.
Alois Jungbauer, PhD, is the head of protein technology and downstream processing at the Department of Biotechnology of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) in Vienna (Austria). For more than 30 years, Professor Jungbauer has worked in biochemical engineering, with a focus on bioseparation, where he has published widely and holds 15 patents. He has also organized a biannual professional course in protein chromatography focused on mass transfer, dispersion, and scale-up.
