Methodology applied for product recovery depends upon when and where the product is formed, the purity of the product, use of the product, impurities that are present within the broth, price of the product and so on. When is applicable for, with which phase of the cell cycle the product is formed and where is applicable for, whether the product is intra-cellular or extra-cellular in its formation. Product recovery cost mainly guides the cost of the product in the market. More investment towards product recovery increases the cost of the product in the market. Even purity of the product and intended use of the product will increase the investment towards product recovery and purification. Various techniques involved in product recovery are filtration, centrifugation, precipitation, dialysis, solvent extraction, chromatographic and electrophoretic techniques, crystallization techniques etc. As we get our resultant filtrate, then this filtrate is subjected for the rest of the purification process. Sometimes the investment we put towards purification also depends on, whether the product needs to be partially purified or completely purified. In this way, the desired product after its purification techniques done will be in its finalised form which is to be packed accordingly and then need to be marketed.
