Green­Light Bio­sciences cel­e­brates man­u­fac­tur­ing mile­stone for Covid-19 boost­er can­di­date

It was late last year when the biotech Green­Light Bio­sciences inked a deal with CD­MO gi­ant Sam­sung Bi­o­log­ics to man­u­fac­ture its mR­NA Covid-19 vac­cine. Now, as Sam­sung pumps more mon­ey in­to its biotech and CD­MO op­er­a­tions, the South Ko­re­an com­pa­ny has com­plet­ed the first com­mer­cial-scale en­gi­neer­ing run for Green­Light’s Covid-19 vac­cine boost­er can­di­date.

Ac­cord­ing to Sam­sung Bi­o­log­ics, Green­Light’s syn­the­sis re­ac­tion had a titer of 12g/L at a com­mer­cial scale and pro­duced 650g of mR­NA. On the back of this test, Green­Light’s Covid boost­er is ex­pect­ed to have da­ta lat­er this year, with man­u­fac­tur­ing at a com­mer­cial scale start­ing soon af­ter.
