Description

  • The Doctoral Programme in Biomedicine coordinates the course.
  • This is an optional course.
  • The course is part of the Field-Specific Studies module.
  • The course is available to students of other degree programmes.

This course is a practical introduction how to purify recombinant proteins (antibodies or user contributed material) using the Äkta Avant FPLC device.

The course can be completed at any stage of studies. In the autumn term 2017, course is not organised annually.
