FastPrep-24™ Classic used in COVID-19 Vaccine Development
MP Biomedicals FastPrep® Instruments help expedite COVID-19 current vaccine research with INOVIO Pharmaceuticals, University of Oxford and CSIRO in Australia.June 05, 2020
MP Biomedicals is proud to see the FastPrep-24 Classic has been instrumental in SARS-CoV-2 therapeutic research. INOVIO Pharmaceuticals, together with University of Oxford and researchers at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) in Australia, were featured on 9 News Australia showcasing their COVID-19 vaccine development.
INOVIO’s industry leading DNA medicines are precisely designed for DNA plasmids to be delivered directly into the body’s cells through INOVIO’s proprietary smart device, CELLECTRA®. The body then produces an immune response robust enough to potentially treat or prevent disease.
MP Biomedicals supports their mission and is willing to help anyone conducting research involving SARS-CoV-2. Please contact us at [email protected] for more information.
