In manufacturing of amino acids, peptides, proteins and monoclonal antibodies 50-90 % of the Cost of Goods (COG) are caused by Downstream Processing. In process development separation processes must be proposed in an efficient sequence based on physico-chemical properties of target molecules, contaminants, side components and impurities to increase yield / recovery, and meet the needed product purity and quality while simultaneously reducing the number of unit operations involved.

The methods of Downstream Processing for complex molecules have become more efficient and thereby more economic. New developments in stationary phases and media, in innovative manufacturing equipment as well as new process design methods by process simulation combined with experimental model parameter determination in laboratory scale made this progress possible.
