Welcome to the Recovery of Biological Products Conference Series

The Recovery of Biological Products Conference Series is the premier international forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in the operations used to recover biological products of therapeutic, diagnostic and industrial value to society. An invitation-only biennial event, the Conference Series provides delegates with a clear and comprehensive understanding of the status and direction of this fast-moving field.

Sponsored by the American Chemical Society, Division of Biochemical Technology (BIOT), this international conference provides exposure to the latest developments in bioprocessing with a focus on downstream processing and aspects that affect the downstream steps. Unparalleled opportunities to network with industry leaders are a key feature of the conference. The size, venue and schedule of the meeting are specifically designed to provide multiple opportunities for discussion and development of new areas and concepts relating to the separation, purification and efficient processing of biological products. The Conference Series is a Not-for-Profit 501(c) (3) organization.
