Vector Preparation Cloning

Target gene design and plasmid production

Operating a fermenter to produce plasmid DNA

Target genes for mRNA therapeutics and vaccines are often discovered and validated using techniques, such as next generation sequencing (NGS). The target sequence will be selected, optimized, synthesized, and inserted into a DNA plasmid to use as a template for mRNA synthesis using in vitro transcription that will be used to produce the mRNA therapeutic or vaccine.

Purification

Plasmid purification and linearization

Fermenters and columns used in plasmid DNA production and purification

DNA plasmids are produced in sufficient quantities using bacteria grown in single-use fermenters. The resulting plasmid products are purified, tested for contaminants, and treated with restriction enzymes to linearize the plasmid DNA template for mRNA synthesis.

Transcriptome

mRNA synthesis

A bioreactor used for mRNA synthesis using in vitro transcription

In vitro transcription uses the linearized DNA template, nucleotides, and enzymes to synthesize mRNA in a single use bioreactor. The resulting mRNA product can be modified to enhance protein translation, improve stability, or reduce immunogenicity as required.

Purification

mRNA purification

Various sized containers of POROS Oligo (dT) 25 affinity chromatography resin used for mRNA purification

The final mRNA product is isolated and purified using affinity and other chromatography and filtration techniques. After purification, the mRNA is tested for purity and for the presence of undesirable immunostimulatory RNA side products.

Cell Size Graph Framed

mRNA analytics

A series of Vanquish UHPLC systems used for analysis of mRNA

Purified mRNA is characterized at the molecular level to verify sequence and to assess mRNA modifications. The lipid nanoparticle (LNP) component of the mRNA vaccine or therapeutic formulation is also analyzed for lipid composition and purity. Understanding the exact molecular composition of both components is critical to ensure the final drug product meets rigorous quality and regulatory standards.

Formulation, fill, and finish

An aseptic fill and finish line producing mRNA vaccines

An mRNA therapeutic or vaccine is formulated by compounding mRNA with a delivery vehicle, such as an LNP or other lipids or carbohydrates. Once formulated, the mRNA containing drug product is processed into the final vaccine or therapeutic, sterilized, aseptically filled, and packaged. The filled packages undergo final testing and are loaded into ultra-low temperature freezers for storage and delivery.
