Announcing the grand winner of The Medicine Maker 2019 Innovation Awards
Stephanie Sutton | | Quick Read
In December 2019, we published The Medicine Maker 2019 Innovation Awards, showcasing the top 16 technologies for drug development and manufacture to hit the market during 2019. But which technology was truly the best? We asked you, our readers, to decide in a public vote on The Medicine Maker website. After counting the votes, we can finally reveal the grand winner: the KUBio Box for Viral Vectors, produced by Cytiva (formerly GE Healthcare). The modular platform provides rapid access to viral vector manufacturing capacity and supports a manufacturing scale up to 200 L.
Close behind the KUBio Box for Viral vectors were two runners up: Everic – modular vials suitable for high potency drugs – from Schott, and StarTab – a starch-based excipient for direct compression – from Colorcon.
