BINDER constant climate chambers: Corona vaccines are tested for shelf life
Never before have vaccines been developed in such a short time as it is currently the case during the Corona pandemic. Some, such as those from Biontech and Pfizer, are even already on the market and are being vaccinated at lightning speed. But what about the shelf life of the new vaccines? And that is exactly what the major pharmaceutical manufacturers are currently testing in constant climate chambers from BINDER. Normally, vaccine development takes between ten and twenty years. This time is not available during the Corona crisis. The number of infected people and also the number of deaths is too high. The call for a rapid vaccination campaign is growing louder and louder. The pharmaceutical companies can hardly keep up with production, but they also concentrate on analyzing the stability of the vaccines. After all, the Corona vaccines will now be available annually, always adapted to certain viral changes, of course. And this is how it works in practice: the stability tests take place, for example, in a KBF or in a KBF LQC, i.e. in a constant climate chamber with ICH-compliant lighting and light dose control.
Smart, safe, economical and reliable: that's BINDER.
And why do major pharmaceutical companies choose BINDER? One reason is that the chambers from Tuttlingen can be used for testing according to ICH guidelines. In addition, the BINDER chambers have a large interior, so that 30 percent more samples can be tested. On top comes the temperature accuracy of the constant climate chambers. BINDER offers climate conditions that are four times more precise than the competition, as well as faster recovery times. Last but not least, the constant climate chambers are particularly impressive because of their lifetime.
But why are the Corona vaccines actually stressed? The pharmaceutical companies have made it their goal to be able to confirm the efficacy of the vaccines to the public even after a longer period of time or after storage periods at different temperatures. It is too early at this point to say how individual vaccines will perform under changing conditions. But one thing is certain: BINDER is your reliable partner in the Corona pandemic.
