No Room for Error


With COVID-19 creating intense focus from governments, companies, and the general public on the practicalities of vaccine development, there’s never been more of a spotlight on clinical sample storage, vaccine manufacturing, and the role of biorepositories in vaccine development.

Additionally, new pressures exerted by the demand to develop a COVID-19 vaccine in record time are fundamentally changing the industry – accelerating evolutions and advances that had already begun and are now evolving at record pace. Vaccine development cycles have been cut from 10 years to 10 months, and the demand for samples generated by clinical trials and needing storage has gone from thousands to hundreds of millions. Similarly, storage requirements for mission-critical manufacturing materials have grown exponentially.

With ultra-low temperature requirements, developing and manufacturing a safe, working, and compliant vaccine creates a raft of new challenges. This is especially true when it comes to managing high volumes of material and data, the storage of these items in sometimes extreme temperature environments, Radha Krishnan at Avantor International Clinical Trials | February 2021 23 24 and the flexibility to respond to rapidly changing demand.
