A key ingredient in Covid vaccines are lipids. These tiny balls of fat, called lipid nanoparticles, or LNPs, are used to deliver fragile mRNA molecules into target cells. Without these lipid shells, there would be no mRNA vaccines for Covid.
De Dietrich glass-lined equipment is used in part of the purification process for lipid production. Lipid purification is a rigorous, multi-stage process put in place to ensure the quality of the lipid meets the high standards required for human injectables.
While we play a small part in the manufacturing of a Covid vaccine ingredient, this is a prime example of how De Dietrich Process Systems’ equipment and systems can play a critical role in helping to make the world a better place.
