Each individual Cell is specific to the Monster it relates to. 

For example: 
Pandalf will only be able to Rank Up with that specific Pandalf Cell. You cannot put any other Cell or a different type of a Pandalf Cell onto him. 

But there is an exception! 

If you manage to obtain some Elementium Cells, you can use them in combination with the individual Cells! The Elementium Cells are a special kind of Cells that can be used for the Crafting or Ranking Up of ALL the Monsters!
