NVX-CoV2373 is a stable, prefusion protein made using Novavax’ nanoparticle technology. AGC Biologics will optimize process development for scaled-up production of Matrix-M to enable Novavax to deliver significant worldwide supply in 2020 and 2021.
“We are extremely proud that Novavax has asked us to expand our production of its coronavirus vaccine, NVX-CoV2373, in Seattle,” says AGC Biologics’ CBO Mark Womack. “This enables us to further support Novavax’ need to move this vaccine forward with extraordinary urgency.”
“We are pleased to expand our partnership with AGC Biologics into the United States. They have established themselves as a critical partner in our supply chain of adjuvant for NVX-CoV2373, and we are grateful for their high level of commitment and flexibility in meeting the urgent demands of this project,” says Timothy J. Hahn, SVP, Process Technology at Novavax.
