ACTIP is an independent and informal, science-based forum of European companies with an active interest in the use of animal cell technology in the development and production of biopharmaceuticals, vaccines and other preventative or therapeutic approaches. For purposes of definition, mammalian cell technology is considered to include animal cells, human cells, primary cells, insect cells and stem cells. New developments in other cell types are reported on regularly.
