All cells that are shipped will come with a post-thaw viability test. The number of passages one can expect the edited cells to grow is dependent on the gene that has been knocked out. If the gene knockout is lethal, we would expect to quickly lose the edited cells. If the gene knockout causes the cells to slow down, compared to their wildtype counterparts, we expect the cells to slowly drift towards wildtype and lose the edited cells. Finally, gene knockouts that will cause the cells to grow faster will eventually take over the population.
