Programs for development of biosimilar vaccines

 

Global demand for vaccines is increasing, especially in emerging markets. The increasing demand for vaccines, warrants the expansion of local production in emerging economies and increases the need for biosimilar technologies. For the establishment of such production technologies, access to the appropriate vaccine seeds and/or production cell lines as well as the transfer of know-how to develop, produce and register vaccines. In some cases a production plant needs to be adapted or newly built. We offer a tailor-made approach that includes the identification of the required production technology and a strategy to acquire such. We develop and transfer essential process steps and we help in the development of a regulatory strategy, such as a roadmap for local marketing authorization or WHO prequalification. Moreover, we design and install a production facility together with our partners.
