The quality of medicine and how it’s delivered to patients is fundamental to treating illness and maintaining health. At USP, we help build a safety net across the drug industry and healthcare system to preserve the well-being of patients.

When patients are administered biological treatments created from their own bodies - autologous regenerative medicines - every second counts. Quality and purity can’t be compromised.
