Had pertinent data relating to chemical inactivation of CHO cells been available at the start-up of our facility, it would
have been possible to move quickly and directly to an annual verification of the chosen methods. This paper should supply
to other groups valuable in-formation that may be used in justifying the selection and use of similar inactivation procedures
in their own facilities.
