Covid-19 man­u­fac­tur­ing roundup: Catal­ent adds freez­er part­ner for vac­cine pro­duc­tion push; In need of vol­un­teers, Lon­za turns to food work­ers

As Catal­ent ramps up its pro­duc­tion of Covid-19 vac­cines in a re­cent push to dou­ble its pro­duc­tion, it has se­cured more of the  tech­nol­o­gy to store them.

Catal­ent and Ster­ling will work to­geth­er to pro­vide more ul­tra-low tem­per­a­ture freez­ers for the CD­MO to pre­serve high­ly tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive ma­te­r­i­al used in vac­cines. The part­ner­ship has al­ready re­sult­ed in the in­stal­la­tion of over 200 freez­ers at Catal­ent fa­cil­i­ties with plans for an­oth­er 60 to be in­stalled at cell and gene ther­a­py sites across the US, Eu­rope and Asia.
