Within bioprocessing, Working Group 4 has currently identified standardization needs in four major technology spaces: 1) component materials control; 2) bioreactor processes; 3) collection, separation, purification and formulation; and 4) handling, transportation & storage. Each category of materials/technology space may affect many current and future applications.
