Course description:
This 3-day training course will provide an introduction to continuous down-stream processing with hands-on practical and theory in process development and bio-manufacturing. It will give an introduction to different available technologies for continuous cell-separation, ultrafiltration, diafiltration and chromatography. The principles on process-integration, quality-by-design, scale-up and economic considerations for continuous processing will be discussed.

Who should attend?
This course is aimed for industrial and academic down-stream specialists, scientists and engineers in the field of bio-manufacturing who are interested in getting to know or broaden their understanding of continuous down-stream processing.

A basic understanding of different down-stream technologies in batch mode is required, such as centrifugation, UF/DF and different types of chromatography (affinity, SEC, IEX).

What are the learning outcomes?

  • To understand continuous downstream processing
  • To understand quality-by-design, regulatory aspects and scale-up of continuous downstream processes
  • To get hands-on training on continuous cell separation
  • To get hands-on training on continuous ultrafiltration and diafiltration
  • To understand theory of multi-column simulated moving bed (SMB) chromatography
  • To get hands-on training on multi-column SMB with affinity chromatography
  • To understand and be capable of process integration of continuous technologies into a DSP manufacturing process


How is the course structured?

The course is a mixture of interactive presentations, workshops and hands-on practical work in a GMP-like environment. Practical work and workshops will be carried out in small groups with a maximum of 2-3 people per group to ensure hands-on experiences at all time.

This course is in collaboration with Pall Biotech, a leading manufacturer of continuous bioprocessing equipment.

Further information:

A certification will be handed out to each participant at the end of course.

Travel and accommodation are not included in the course fee. Flights can be booked to either Geneva or Zurich airport with a direct train connection from both airports to Fribourg.

Accommodation can be booked in the Alpha-Hotel (, which is only a 5 minute walk from the Biofactory Competence Center.
