Vaccine development begins at the bench. Whether your vaccine program requires the expression and purification of proteins, nucleic acids, virus-like-particles, polysaccharide conjugated vaccines, recombinant viral vectors, or live-attenuated pathogens (viruses/bacteria), Catalent will help you with your research and pre-clinical vaccine studies. As the project advances, we will also provide CGMP manufacturing services to bring your vaccine candidate through clinical trials and to market. Catalent has expertise in developing and manufacturing vaccines to protect against a wide variety of infectious diseases and cancers, including working with multiple partners on all major classes of COVID-19 vaccines in development.
