separation


Explanation:
There is a dictionary entry for fractionation in Mosby's medical for a chemical process, but i think this is used more for plasma/histology and bacteriology. It seems "separation" is the normal usage:


http://www.alfalaval.be/separation/customers/sebi1r.htm
Efficient centrifugal separation is crucial to the productivity of the biotech and pharmaceutical processes. Expectations in terms of yield, concentration, purity and cleanliness are extremely high. This starts during the research phase and continues throughout process development to full commercial production. Alfa Laval is specialized in separation of cell and cell debris with long experience of solving also other biotech and pharmaceutical separation problems.

No Fractionation Yes Pharmaceutical breakup product


Explanation:
I don´t suggest you fractionation, because in english is not used as a verb, but it´s used as a noun, what you need here is a verb that shows that a product is break up/dived
