As I occasional like to do, today’s post is dedicated to a search phrase that brought someone to this blog. Today’s search phrase is “what is the difference between gxp and gmp?”

GMP stands for “Good Manufacturing Practices,” GLP for “Good Laboratory Practices” and GCP for “Good Clinical Practices.” When we speak of GxP (or GXP), we generically mean this group.

In addition, we sometimes add a lower-case “c” such as cGMP to indicate “current Good Manufacturing Practices” to indicate that we mean to refer to the most up-to-date ones.
