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.
Topics included are: Industrial Cell Cultures/ Pharmaceutical Proteins/ Bioreactors/ Media and Air Sterilization/ Oxygen Transfer/ Scale Implications/ Fermentation Data Analysis/ Cell and Debris Removal/ Protein Purification/ Electrokinetic Separations/ Final Recovery Steps/ Process Validation

This user-friendly reference provides the most systematic, up-to-date coverage available in the dynamic and ever-expanding area of biotechnology. Completely revised, restructured and updated the new second edition spans the field from basic concepts to industrial applications including: biotech fundamentals, production of enzymes, biomass, food and feed, primary and secondary products of microbial metabolism.From the Back Cover:
Biotechnology Second, Completely Revised Edition Edited by H.-J. Rehm and G. Reed in cooperation with A. Pühler and P. Stadler This fully revised and expanded Second Edition takes into account all recent developments in biotechnology. It is extraordinarily broad in scope, up-to-date, carefully structured and well-balanced. "Biotechnology" considers both basic concepts and widely-differing industrial applications: it is a successful synthesis of theory and practice. Any scientist aiming for success in industrial microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and chemical engineering must turn to "Biotechnology".
