USP/NF and Biopharmaceutical
Biopharmaceuticals are medical drugs that are manufactured by using biotechnology procedures. They consist of proteins (including antibodies) and nucleic acids (DNA, RNA, or antisense oligonucleotides) used for therapeutic or in-vivo diagnostic purposes. Most of the biopharmaceutical products are derived from life forms. Within the U.S., manufacturers of these drugs must satisfy the "current Good Manufacturing Practices" of the Food and Drug Administration. The Lab Depot maintains a large selection of these biopharmaceuticals. Browse our selection now and call with any questions.
The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) sets the standards for all prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines, dietary supplements, and healthcare products. Chemicals sold with USP certification are guaranteed to meet strict standards for chemical assay, purity, loss on drying, heavy metals and many other chemical specifications. At The Lab Depot, we carry a broad range of USP chemicals and biopharmaceuticals to meet all your chemical needs.
