Biochemical Engineering - CENG97035
The aim of the module is to provide an overview of many of the techniques used in biotechnology, which in many cases differ markedly from chemical engineering. This module will start off with fermentation and description of the ensuing product properties. This is then followed by a fundamental review of conventional downstream separations approaches which include; Cell Lysis, Sedimentation/Filtration, Ab/Ad-sorption, Extraction, Precipitation, Chromatography, Crystallisation and Drying. Finally, we will discuss the modern separation technologies to obtain these potential target products.
