Synopsis

This course introduces the basic principle of extraction, separation and purification of bioproducts together with theory and principle of related separation instrument. In extraction parts, students will be exposed on extraction methods of nucleic acids, proteins and metabolic compounds. While in bioseparation parts, students will be exposed on separation and purification principles, techniques including separation by liquid chromatography, filtration, precipitation, sedimentation, crystallization and drying process.

 

Course Outcomes

1. Explain the principle of extraction and bioseparation of bioproducts

2. Apply fundamental calculation in extraction and bioseparation

3. Compare and contrast different bioseparation approaches of biological materials

4. Recommend suitable extraction and bioseparation approaches for  small and large scale production  of biological materials

5. Outline and propose a suitable extraction and bioseparation methods, flow and equipment for production of products from different samples in a schematic diagram

6. Discuss the  important aspects in extraction and bioseparation of biotechnological products for commercialization purpose
