26 February 2021 -

Contract research company Albany Molecular Research Inc (AMRI) said on Thursday that it has been selected to support the development and manufacture of lipid excipients for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

AMRI now joins the network of approved manufacturers of lipid excipients to increase the supply of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.

In addition, AMRI has been providing development, scale-up and manufacturing services at a number of its global R&D and production sites, demonstrating operational flexibility and expertise to deliver capacity for lipid excipient supply for the vaccine at unprecedented speed to support the programme. This critical lipid excipient surrounds and protects the vaccine's active ingredient.
