Accelerating COVID-19 and Other Vaccine Trials Without Sacrificing Data Quality

Researchers conducting vaccine clinical studies face unique challenges compared to those conducting trials in other disease states. These stem primarily from the significant time pressures that are created by varying seasonal heath concerns and the need to fast-track studies during outbreaks such as the coronavirus (COVID-19) (1).

Clinical trial sponsors need reliable methods to capture critical data directly from trial participants as they evaluate the safety and effectiveness of vaccines during development. Sponsors need to be able to implement these methods quickly to prevent trial delays.

Digital solutions are overcoming the data capture challenges that face vaccine developers and delivering the important data they need to bring new vaccines to market sooner.

Microalgae Culture Using the DASGIP® PBR4 Module for Illumination with a New Brunswick™ CelliGen® 310 Stirred-tank Bioreactor


The number of bioprocess applications for microalgae has increased in recent years, particularly in the fi eld of biofuel production. The combination of the New Brunswick CelliGen 310 stirred-tank bioreactor and the DASGIP LED Illumination System creates a bioreactor setup which is capable of supporting high density microalgal growth. Using the stand-alone Eppendorf DASGIP PBR4 Module, LED illumination spectra and intensities can be controlled for optimal support of all types of chlorophylls and carotenoids. For this study in which high density culture of up to 1.5 x 107 cells/mL was achieved, the unicellular freshwater alga, Dunaliella tertiolecta, was used.
