In Ethan’s two-part webinar series on the fundamentals of filtration, he marries a rigorous theoretical treatment of mass transport phenomena with practical application to clarification and sterilization processes used at biopharmaceutical companies every day. Based on his lectures at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Ethan starts with a broad overview of filtration terminology and then delves deeply into structure-function relationships, phenomenological modeling, bench-scale analysis and process-scale sizing. These webinars are intended for new and experienced process development scientists alike and will set the foundation for advanced topics discussed in later webinars.
