An increasing amount of pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and nutraceuticals nowadays are biomolecules manufactured by way of a biotechnological process. To recover the desired product from the biological raw material, elaborate cleaning and separation procedures are required, often followed by post-extraction processing steps.

Featuring over 70% new or rewritten content to keep pace with the rapidly evolving technology in this field, the new edition of the "Bible" on the technology behind biopharmaceuticals production offers unmatched quality and scope in two topical volumes. It remains the only resource to systematically cover all post-production issues.

Alongside coverage of antibodies and other biopharmaceuticals, diagnostics and food additives, this reference also treats recent developments in cleaning, separation and processing of biomolecules, as well as the increasingly important issues of process development, quality control and validation. The biological safety required for working with infectious or genetically modified production organisms is also discussed.

From the contents:

Volume 1

  • Strategy and development
  • Bioprocess and early DSP
  • Preparative (chromatographic) methods

Volume 2

  • Specific bioprocesses and separation methods
  • Safety, quality control, validation and regulatory considerations
  • Analytical methods and technologies

By combining the experience of academic experts, managers from the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, as well as independent consultants, this book allows biological product recovery to be viewed from every possible angle.

An invaluable companion for biotechnologists, pharmaceutical engineers, and process engineers, as well as those working in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, chemical and food industries.
