Process Purification

  • James L Dwyer
Part of the Biological Methods book series (BM)


This chapter addresses itself to the isolation and purification of high-value peptides/proteins. There is also a set of process operations within the food and chemical industries that deals with protein purification. Purity requirements and process economics requirements of the latter materials are so different as to require a separate set of unit operations.
