LARGE-SCALE OPERATION

As mentioned in the introductory chapter, the development of

biotechnology requires large industrial-scale liquid chromatog-

raphy (LC), also called process LC, for finely purifying a large

amount of bioproducts. The large preparative-scale LC is also

useful for laboratory researchers who wish to obtain a substance

of interest that is present in very low concentrations in raw

materials.
