Biological assay

Biological assay

(Science: technique) once a pharmaceutical protein is isolated from the cells in which it was grown, researchers perform tests to measure the proteins biological activity.

It must maintain a certain minimal level of biological activity to be used for animal or clinical testing or, later, for market. Researchers also test to confirm that the isolated protein is identical to the desired protein.
