From a text I'm translating into English (I used a colon, but these phrases are really in adjacent table cells):

Cell culture morphology: has a morphology typical for a suspension cell culture.

I first wrote for, but then recalled this question on ELU, and became uncertain.

Would of be acceptable in this case? To me, for looks much more natural.

  • Using of is perhaps a little more formal, but for is fine.
