NIBSC provides a number of expert services to help assure the quality of biological medicines and diagnostic tests for complex biological analytes, in addition to providing catalogue reference materials, official control authority batch release testing and underpinning research.
For example we help develop and produce customised biological reference materials for use in biological medicine performance and safety tests. A more recent addition to the services we can provide is the production of customised cell lines. We also carry out some contract testing of biological materials, for example to help manufacturers validate their in-house assays or reference materials.
As part of our goal to disseminate our knowledge, we provide scientific and regulatory advice and hold training and other events relevant to the biological medicine and clinical diagnostic fields.
