1st & 2nd PhenoPrep

What previous attendees thought of the previous PhenoPrep symposia...

"The Phenoprep symposium brings together experts of preparative chromatography from leading pharmaceutical companies - an excellent event for networking and fruitful discussions."

Dr. Jörg Lill, Hoffmann La Roche, Basel, Switzerland

"“Phenoprep symposium 2017 was probably the most applicative symposium I attended last years. Numerous industrial study cases were presented and that allow me to improve some processes/techniques.”
I will more than probably attend Phenoprep Symposium 2019."

Antoni Severino, UCB Belgium

"The organization of Phenoprep 2017 was excellent. As a speaker, it gave me the opportunity to meet colleagues and also users of preparative chromatography and have very stimulating discussions ! The audience is on purpose limited and this is a good strategy to stimulate contacts between attendants."

Henri Colin of Ulysse Consulting
