Inactivated & Inactivated-Adjuvanted Vaccine Development & Testing

Inactivated vaccines are a type of vaccine that uses a killed form of a disease-causing virus or bacteria to trigger an immune response. Adjuvants are sometimes added to inactivated vaccines to enhance the immune response. Inactivated and inactivated-adjuvanted vaccines are safe, effective, and long-lasting, and they have been used to protect people from a variety of diseases, including influenza, Pertussis, Typhoid, and hepatitis A.


Accelerate Your Vaccine Development with Southern Research

Southern Research is a leading contract research organization (CRO) that specializes in the preclinical development of inactivated-adjuvanted vaccines. We have a team of experienced scientists and researchers who are experts in all aspects of inactivated-adjuvanted vaccine development, including:

    • Growth, purifications, and inactivation of candidate pathogens
    • Adjuvant selection, formulation, and delivery of vaccine candidates
    • In vitro and in vivo testing of inactivated and inactivated-adjuvanted vaccine candidates
    • Assessment of the safety and efficacy of vaccine candidates in animal models
    • Assistance and consulting on the development adn scale-up of manufacturing processes for inactivated and inactivated-adjuvanted vaccine candidates

We offer a wide range of preclinical vaccine development services, including:

  • Feasibility studies: We can help you assess the feasibility of developing an inactivated or inactivated-adjuvanted vaccine for your target disease.
  • Lead optimization: We can help you optimize your vaccine candidate to improve its safety and efficacy.
  • Preclinical testing: We can conduct all of the necessary preclinical testing to evaluate thesafety and efficacy of your vaccine candidate in animal models.
  • Manufacturing development: We can help you develop a manufacturing process for your vaccine candidate, so that it can be produced at scale for clinical trials. If you are developing an inactivated/inactivated-adjuvanted vaccine candidate, we encourage you to contact us to learn more about how we can help you accelerate your vaccine development.
