NIST provides measurements and standards of biological industrial processes, and operates a robust biomanufacturing program--including an annual industry round table to learn about emerging needs.
NIST supports biomanufacturing with measurement science, standards, data, and other tools, with a particular emphasis on support for the manufacture of biopharmaceutical products. Our work helps ensure the quality of biological drugs and other products. For example, we developed a reference material that helps drug manufacturers accurately calibrate the instruments that measure the protein particles in their products that might lead to unwanted patient reactions.
