• Retrospective Assessment of Clonal Origin of Cell Lines

    15 days ago - By Wiley

    Abstract
    Cell lines used for the manufacture of recombinant proteins are expected to arise from a single cell as a control strategy to limit variability and ensure consistent protein production. Health authorities require a minimum of two rounds of limiting dilution cloning or its equivalent to meet the requirement of single cell origin. However, many legacy cell lines may not have been generated with process meeting this criteria potentially impeding the path to commercialization. A general monoclonality assessment strategy was developed based on using the site of plasmid integration for...
