Abstract : A simple batch-type, foam-separation apparatus is described which has produced a 200-fold concentration of added protein from artificial seawater. Essentially total recovery of the protein was achieved from initial concentrations as low as 5 micro g/l. The method is rapid and simple in operation and is proposed for use in concentrating surface-active compounds from seawater. (Author)
