As more and more biological drugs are developed, an ever greater demand falls on achieving pure protein, either for research or for therapeutic development. Achieving pure protein quicker and cheaper is essential, while also ensuring protein quality. Researchers must streamline the steps required to achieve purity, but protein’s intrinsic nature can cause headaches and frustrations. When faced with greater protein challenges such as membrane proteins, expanding the purification toolbox becomes extremely helpful.

In addition, new technologies are continually emerging that offer support, and traditional techniques, such as chromatography and Protein A, are also being innovated. The “Protein Purification Technologies” conference explores current strategies that are proving successful and looks at new ways to streamline techniques in the continual quest for purity.
