  • examines current cell characterisation techniques
  • makes a call to action for improved cell characterisation to aid R&D and manufacturing in cell therapeuticssuggests
  • miRNA profiling as one of the standard methods for cell characterisation

The article is published in the July issue of European Biopharmaceutical Review and will be available on-line at
