The USP Global Biologics department develops monographs and associated general chapters in the area of biotherapeutics.  Various methodologies are used for the purposes of establishing identity, strength, quality, and purity of biotherapeutics. Chromatography, electrophoresis, and bioassays are examples of methods used to address key quality attributes covered in USP standards. This presentation will describe the process of developing these standards.
