This paper shares industry feedback after the publication of two BioPhorum papers that complement ongoing efforts in the wider CGT field. It supplements these publications by delving into identity testing and cross-contamination for plasmid master cell banks and plasmid DNA, and other plasmid DNA release tests (including DNA homogeneity, residual DNA and host RNA, and sterility or bioburden).
