Proof of clonality and its importance in stable cell line development

What is clonality and why is it important Clonality is a crucial step in stable cell line development (CLD) for biotherapeutic workflows and one closely monitored by the medicines’ regulators. Their questions lead to two possible conclusions about how they view the importance of clonality1: Assurance of “clonality” of stable production cell lines is of …
