The goal: Develop a CGMP formulation–fill process for a subunit vaccine–aluminum adjuvant complex.

The challenge: To engineer a scaled-up process for vaccine–adjuvant suspension formulation and fill, ensuring a uniform fill per dose as well as a sterile product.

The outcome: Florida Biologix scientists successfully developed the manufacturing, formulation–fill process and test methods. The process was conducted successfully in a scaled-down engineering run and at full scale, and 2,500 vials were tested, released, and shipped to the clinic on time.
