Using 96-well microplates for chromatography adsorbent selection and process development may expedite typical activities undertaken
by process development groups.
Using such a format requires smaller sample volumes and can rapidly generate data from a number of points than might otherwise
be possible in the same time frame. As a result, this method is likely to be of benefit in this important area of biopharmaceutical
process development. Furthermore, using these high throughput experimental techniques increases the number of adsorbents or
process conditions that can be evaluated, potentially resulting in substantial time and cost savings in process development
