COVID-19 research application notes

Vaccine development workflow

Vaccine development workflows vary depending upon the platform (e.g. inactivated virus vs. DNA vaccine) chosen, each having its own advantages. In order to increase the likelihood of success against the infectious agent, CEPI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, and many other organizations promote diverse approaches during a pandemic.

We’ve created a variety of virus-related workflows – from antigen/immunogen and antibody discovery to stable cell line development. Below is a general workflow for vaccine development using recombinant proteins as the immunogen, referencing the systems to aid in your research.

Covid Vaccine development workflow

  1. Screen for binding to virus-specific immunogen – Screen virus-specific immunogens through binding using phage display
  2. Immunogen Characterization – Characterize lead immunogen candidates
  3. Protein (immunogen) Engineering – Optimize lead immunogen sequence and structure to enhance anti-viral function
  4. Cell Transfection and Cloning – Introduce lead immunogen sequence into cells for protein expression
  5. Screen for Quality Attributes, including Titer – Screen transfected cells to identify clones with high protein yield and desired quality attributes
