The Center for Advanced Regulatory Analysis provides analytical services based on a large array of state-of-the-art instrumentation and world class technical staff.

CARA also evaluates the capabilities of existing analytical technologies on behalf of tool providers by conducting cross-platform evaluation. The Center participates in the creation of new or improved analytical technologies and provides independent analyses of drugs produced in the U.S. and overseas and also conducts comprehensive characterization studies of complex glycoproteins.
