SB3000 to help provide rapid scale up for coronavirus vaccine production

Swedish Biomimetics 3000 ApS

Swedish Biomimetics 3000 partners with Evaxion biotech to provide rapid scale up for commercial production of corona virus vaccines with its continuous manufacturing technology.

  • SB3000’s patented, continuous manufacturing technology μLOT® may be used to accelerate manufacturing development and rapidly deployed for large scale commercial production
  • Because μLOT® enabled facilities are modular and a fraction of the size of traditional batch facilities they have the potential to be easily transported to sites around the world.

Evaxion Biotech A/S has received funding from the Danish Innovation Fund to further develop their AI platform RAVEN to rapidly respond against future corona virus pandemics - from initial discovery to first in human trials in as little as 13 weeks. During those 13 weeks SB3000 intends to develop and validate a tailored μLOT® continuous manufacturing process for the vaccine at commercial scale. Being modular and easily transportable the μLOT® enabled production units can be deployed to sites across the world.

Evaxion believes that by combining its structural design tools and prediction algorithms, RAVEN (Rapidly Adaptive Viral Response) will be able to develop a vaccine design that induces both a T and B–cell response. The main aim of the RAVEN platform is to respond rapidly to future emerging viral pandemics, and intends to target the virus behind COVID-19 as a proof of concept in animal models.

Lars Wegner CEO of Evaxion commented, “We believe that it requires high levels of innovation to design and develop a new vaccine very rapidly and we intend to harvest the full potential of our RAVEN AI technology platform. To do this we will be combining it with an equally innovative manufacturing technology to tackle the production bottleneck of current manufacturing technologies to rapidly scale up commercial production. We expect that the SB3000 μLOT® technology for continuous manufacturing of peptides will allow us to accelerate design, development and supply. The manufacturing process will be developed at scale during pre-clinical studies and, upon validation, we expect that this method will be scaled out and moved straight into commercial production with no further development required, at a fraction of the traditional manufacturing cost.”

“We believe that one of the most important benefits of this technology is that a manufacturing facility enabled by μLOT® can be easily set up or relocated due to its modular design. We believe that this is becoming particularly important as more and more countries see securing internal supply of essential medicines as a key strategic element of a nation’s security,” says Head of R&D of SB3000 Jens Bukrinski.

SB3000 has been developing the μLOT® technology for some years and in addition to this agreement with Evaxion, SB3000 has a research agreement with, a large international pharmaceutical company, and is in the advanced stages of negotiations on a commercial production agreement with a large European specialty pharmaceutical company.

Zsolt Lavotha CEO of SB3000 commented, “We are delighted to be working with Evaxion, which we believe to be a leader in bringing rapid advances in the discovery and design of potential new treatments through their proprietary AI technology platforms. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the importance of not only the rapid discovery of new treatments, but also the importance of getting these treatments to patients around the world.”

Stability Testing and Forced Degradation Stress Tests - Proactive Risk Management

Whereas the durability of many consumables, have a strong tendency to decrease, stability is and remains a crucial factor for pharmaceuticals. That is why the identification and elimination of factors, which put long-term stability at risk, is central during development – and an important requirement concerning the product’s quality.

Customising the Cold Chain

World Courier

Of all the statistics emerging around the global pharmaceutical industry this year, two big numbers capture the attention of both manufacturers and their logistics partners: $248 billion, the amount the “BRIC” nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) are poised to account for in pharmaceutical sales for by 2016; and $8 billion, the amount global pharma will spend on cold chain logistics in 2014. Why are these two numbers so noteworthy? They demonstrate that as R&D goes, so goes logistics. As products evolve to meet demands for more targeted therapies, demand for more targeted logistics solutions grows as well. And that means a need for customization for everything from clinical trial samples to finished product.
