SURVEY November 2013
The Alliance for Harmonisation of Cellular Therapy Accreditation (AHCTA) requests processing facilities to complete a survey to assist with developing recommendations for cell processing laboratory staff qualifications, training and competency. Please limit your responses to just those staff responsible for the processing of minimally manipulated products like hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPC) for stem cell transplantation and therapeutic cells (TC)- T cells. Only a single response from each processing facility is required.
