A new magnetic filter for selective bio separation

Christian Eichholz, Matthias Stolarski, Hermann Nirschl
One of the emerging fields in the downstream processing of modern biotechnology lies in the use of particulate systems with functionalized surfaces to separate a target bio product like protein, enzyme, DNA etc. from bio broth by selective adsorption. Especially here the application of magnetic separation methods has emerged strongly for analytical purposes. To apply the same concept to industrial bio production processes new technologies have to be provided which allow effective and economical
