The second edition of this book constitutes a comprehensive manual of new techniques for setting up mammalian cell lines for production of biopharmaceuticals, and for optimizing critical parameters for cell culture considering the whole cascade from lab to final production. The chapters are written by world-renowned experts and the volume's five parts reflect the processes required for different stages of production. This book is a compendium of techniques for scientists in both industrial and research laboratories that use mammalian cells for biotechnology more
