Assessment of biosimilar molecules requires an orthogonal analytical approach. Any one particular analytical technique is not able to fully define the physical and biological characteristics of the original biotherapeutic or its potential biosimilar. Instead, a panel of analytical techniques must be used that can assess various and related, and sometimes overlapping, characteristics of the molecule. This allows for a more complete and integrated understanding of the biotherapeutic molecule’s form and function.
