Expediting Viral Vaccine Development for Covid-19: Integrated Media/Buffers Solutions and Testing for Virus Expression
As the world searches for a way to end the coronavirus pandemic, government bodies, academic collaborations and pharma companies race to produce effective new therapies and vaccine candidates for COVID-19. With more than 115 companies actively engaged in this endeavour, we see approximately 10% of these vaccine candidates focused on viral vaccine expression systems. Speed to clinic is of paramount importance; however, as producing a commercial vaccine can take many years, how can we accelerate vaccine development with speed and safety in mind?
To meet these challenges in a pandemic situation, you can benefit from our rapid platform approaches for your cell line and virus seed testing, our media manufacturing network, and our scalable single use process solutions and process monitoring tools to simplify progression and ensure rapid release of your drug product.
