Our contribution to Global Health
In pursuit of increasing global vaccination coverage, we are committed to develop technologies that substantially lower the cost of vaccine manufacturing. Hereto, we develop highly intensified production process for viral vaccines, HIP-Vax, to reduce cost of product by decreasing CAPEX and cost of goods. Furthermore, we have developed SCOUT® technology to reduce development timelines and time to market. As it is known that costs of capital (53%) and cost of failure (40%) are the biggest cost attributes to a vaccine price paid by consumers, our platforms substantially aid global health initiatives to reach their goals.
Viral vaccines track record
We have extensive experience in manufacturing a wide range of viruses including polio, measles, rubella, influenza and rotavirus. We are proud to have delivered vaccine products for phase-I and phase-II clinical studies in both the EU and US markets. Our experience in the field, anchored in production, purification, and testing protocols, has resulted in a successful track record in delivering vaccine products. For example, in a collaboration with PATH, we have manufactured GMP virus stocks of several novel oral polio vaccine strains. In addition, in collaboration with Prof. Marcellus Ubbink (Leiden University, Netherlands) we are developing a very promising new class of vaccines: self-adjuvating, thermostable influenza vaccines.
John Konz, Project Director, PATH: “The projects that we have done with Batavia were both technically and logistically challenging, but owing to their in-depth know-how and experience in working with viruses, have been very successful. The staff members at Batavia display great ownership in delivering on their commitments.”
Prof. Marcellus Ubbink, Leiden University: “Together with Batavia Biosciences, under a grant from the TTW (Applied and Engineering Sciences) domain of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), we are jointly developing novel influenza vaccines. This is a very exciting program and requires intimate collaboration, because the program involves a public – private training module. I am enthusiastic about the collaboration, because such projects between the University and a research-oriented company like Batavia are the way for scientific insights to find useful applications in society.”
