PREP 2009 - Description

The PREP Symposium strives to provide the participants with a stage to present and discuss the very latest scientific and technological advances in preparative and process chromatography, with an exposure to the latest chromatography products available on the market, and with opportunities for training and continuing education.

The meeting will include:

  • A Strong Applications-Oriented Workshop Program
  • A Vendor Exhibit Providing Access to the Latests Advances on the Market
  • A Rich Scientific Program Addressing Advances in All Fields of Application
  • A Poster Session Designed to Get into Deeper Discussions
  • Topics Include:
  • - Industrial case studies in protein chromatography
    - Industrial case studies in chiral and small-scale prep
    - Prep chromatography in pharmaceutical discovery and development
    - New and improved stationary phases for small and large molecules
    - Continuous chromatography and SMB systems
    - Advances in the theory of chromatography
    - Advances in the optimization of chromatographic separations
    - New and improved experimental techniques

    PREP 2009 - What is New

  • New Industrial Case Studies

  • PREP 2009 will continue to expand the number of industrial case studies sessions bringing examples of not only solutions but also challenges and opportunities in the application of chromatography to industrial production processes as well as preclinical development.
  • New Focused Technical Sessions

  • In addition to general interest plenary sessions, PREP 2009 will feature new technical sessions addressing specific topics important to discovery, development and production including analysis and method development, small-scale (less than 1 g) and intermediate-scale prep (1 g to 1 kg), and large-scale prep (more than 1 kg).
  • New Workshop Formats for Better Training

  • The Sunday training workshops will be coordinated into two day-long courses, one focused on small molecules and one on biomolecules. Each course will combine into a joint session addressing regulatory and product quality aspects. Both small-scale prep and manufacturing scale processing will be addressed. This approach will provide more intensive and valuable training giving insight on the design and scale-up of chromatography with applications from the laboratory to the commercial manufacturing scale. Certificates of completion recognizing attendance will be awarded.
