Heidelberg, Germany: – Specialist bioanalytical contract laboratory Bioassay GmbH will present its leading-edge messenger RNA (mRNA) services at the 2023 Vaccines Europe conference in Berlin.

Bioassay will take advantage of the meeting’s networking sessions to present advantages of its   mRNA vaccine development and validation platform, developed to support testing of the new generation of vaccines whose development was spurred by the SARS Covid-19 pandemic.

GxP mRNA vaccine platform

The new Bioassay platform can be used to assess potency of mRNA vaccines including for all SARS CoV-2 variants, using a flow cytometry based analytical method and a time-efficient two-day protocol for measurement of antibody binding to spike protein following transfection. Bioassay has developed proof of concept on the platform to include a broad range of mRNA applications.

The robust and precise assay is optimized by testing a wide variety of parameters and is suitable for batch release and stability evaluation under cGMP conditions.

NextGen vaccine development

The Bioassay team in Berlin will be led by its Director of Business Development, Dr. Luisa Duque, who commented: “Bioassay’s mRNA vaccine offerings are highly relevant to this audience and to a meeting that is so intently focused on development challenges for next generation RNA-based vaccines.”

Bioassay’s discussions will also focus on new application opportunities for its extensive portfolio of specific peptide synthesis and analysis services, sitting alongside its potency assays and other functional bioanalytical and biopharma assays.
