mRNA Development

Scaling up mRNA rapidly and reliably for use as vaccines and therapeutics is an important step in moving a drug from novel concept to clinical trials. Given the flexibility of mRNA as a platform technology, mRNA is an ideal technology for responding to fast-moving diseases. 

We're here to help you through the entire development phase whether it be mRNA testing, regulatory, or clinical trial materials so that you can lay down the best foundations for your process as you move towards manufacturing. We can help you choose the right materials at the development phase that meet compliance needs for your application to ensure your process is viable in terms of feasibility and scalability. Spanning from non-GMP to IPEC GMP-grade process chemicals, many of our pharma and biopharma materials are part of the Emprove® Program and have all the documentation that you’ll need to go through qualification, risk assessment, and process optimization. The Emprove® Program also covers filter and single-use components as well as select chromatography resins.

Characterization and Method Development

mRNA characterization is a necessary component of method development. We provide a wide range of products and services that meet your compliance standards for characterizing mRNA in biopharmaceutical applications, including:

Plasmid DNA Production, mRNA Synthesis, and mRNA Purification

pDNA production and purification present several challenges due to the large size of the nucleic acid and its high viscosity, shear sensitivity and the similarities between the product and impurities. Additionally, scaling up mRNA synthesis and purification for the delivery of mRNA vaccines and in other biopharmaceutical applications requires purification products and tools that give consistent batch-to batch results. Our comprehensive portfolio of products and services for plasmid DNA production through mRNA synthesis and purification help you navigate through these challenges and can be used from the development phase through manufacturing allowing for easy scale-up of your process.

mRNA Contract Development and Manufacturing Services

As part of our integrated mRNA CDMO, we support mRNA development and manufacturing from milligram to gram scale using the AmpTec™ workflow. This covers all steps from pDNA to the final purified mRNA drug substance. Our portfolio and services address the most critical challenges in mRNA manufacturing enabling fast timelines and high-quality purified drug products.

Lipid Nanoparticle (LNP) Formulation

We provide a variety of lipids to design the most appropriate lipid nanoparticle formulation and deliver your mRNA efficiently. Aside from lipids, we supply a variety of pharma raw materials including IPEC GMP compliant Emprove® Chemicals like solvents, buffers, salts, and stabilizers for liquid formulations.

Vaccine Immunogenicity and Efficacy

In Vitro Immunogenicity

Immunogenicity studies are crucial in vaccine development, as they measure the ability of vaccine candidates to elicit a desired immune response. We offer a wide range of premier cell culture products and in vitro 2D and 3D cell culture tools that enable reliable in vitro immunogenicity testing using biologically relevant models. Our cell culture reagents give researchers more precise control over cell growth and maintenance, ensuring consistent and reliable results. Our in vitro 2D and 3D cell culture tools provide the necessary testing platforms to evaluate immunogenicity under conditions that better mimic the in vivo environment. We provide researchers with the necessary tools for successful analysis and development of lead candidates to support the development of more effective vaccines.

In Vivo Efficacy

Immune modulation can be assessed using our immunoassay platform solutions. For qualitative analysis, SMC® (Single Molecule Counting) technology offers superior sensitivity down to the single molecule level, facilitating detection of early humoral responses post-vaccination. For quantitative analyses, multiplexing MILLIPLEX® panels can be used to measure humoral and cellular immune response.

We also provide an extensive array of products and services to support immunogenicity screening. Our vast selection of validated antibodies and innovative MultiScreen® Plates for ELISA and ELISpot assays enable researchers to measure B and T cell response. MultiScreen® plates can be customized with user-defined reagents and are available in an 8-well strip format for analysis of individual samples. ELISA plates come in medium or high binding capacity to compliment specific assay needs, while ELISpot plates feature mixed cellulose ester or hydrophobic PVDF membranes for high binding capacity and single cell-level resolution. In addition, our MultiScreen® IP PVDF filter plates can be used for multiplexed fluorescent ELISpot assays, enabling multiparameter analysis of the immune response.

Transcriptome Profiling

Gene expression studies are crucial for immunogenicity screening in both in vivo and in vitro studies, providing valuable insights into the mechanisms and efficacy of vaccines. Emerging technologies such as RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) and MULTI-Seq multiplexing offer greater accuracy, better sensitivity, and broader analytical capabilities for evaluating gene expression in response to vaccines.

These technologies generate a comprehensive view of the transcriptome, allowing for the analysis of complex gene expression patterns and identification of new biomarkers for vaccine efficacy.
