Vaccine Research Discovered

Well thought-out tools for pharmaceutical and biotech laboratories


Numerous vaccine technology platforms evolved over the past few decades. Today, addressing disease outbreaks and protecting the immuno-compromized provides population severe challenges and at the same time harbors significant growth potential.

Traditional whole-pathogen vaccine platforms, which require the cultivation of the pathogen, have a proven track record for many diseases. The newer generation of vaccine platforms like recombinant protein and the new era of nucleic acid-based vaccines solely need the pathogen’s genetic sequence. By significantly increasing the speed of development and manufacturing processes they open up new potential for a plethora of indications and a vaccine development process in a speed that has never been achieved before.

Traditional vaccines: Inactivated and live-attenuated vaccines

Whole inactivated vaccines, first introduced in 1869 for typhoid, still carry the full repertoire of immunogenic components of the original pathogen.

Strong growing vaccines: Recombinant protein vaccines 

Protein subunit vaccines as for influenza or hepatitis B and C are a proven strategy for decades and still today in the spotlight for pandemic management.

The most novel vaccines: Nucleic acid vaccines

Nucleic acid vaccines are made up of mRNA or plasmid DNA encoding antigens which are expressed inside the host cells. Especially mRNA vaccines showed their potential during the recent pandemic and numerous future applications remain to be explored.

It All Started in 1,500 BC

The history of vaccination begins with the fight against smallpox as early as 1,500 BC. Chinese doctors ground up pieces of smallpox crust from infected people into a powder that was administered as a snuffing agent. People from Asia and Europe immunized themselves by transferring thevesicular contents of smallpox to healthy people.
