The 19th ESACT meeting was to highlight the novel capabilities of the industry to move the products towards the clinic. It was attended by a wide range of workers in the industry and for many it was their first ESACT meeting. The proceedings here include the short papers adding the knowledge of the previous meetings and provide a reference for the researcher entering, or continuing in the field of Animal Cell Technology.
Up-to-date technology in the industry
Relevant reference of the industrial applications
