Bioprocessing: an exciting new engineering discipline. It combines the
development and optimization of biotechnological processes with effective
strategies to recover and purify the desired products. Safety as well as
cost play an important role here.
This volume covers the immensely differentiated spectrum of techniques
and operations of bioprocessing, presented by the most competent experts
in the field. An overview of upstream and downstream processing is given,
fermentation and cell culture processes and the design of microbial fermenters
are presented. A closing group of chapters is dedicated to issues of process
validation, measurement, and regulation.
