UV/Vis Application in COVID-19 Vaccine Research

Increasing Speed and Accuracy when Analyzing Vaccine Candidates and Their Components

A vaccine is a type of treatment aimed at stimulating the body’s immune system to fight against infectious pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. They are, according to the World Health Organization, “one of the most effective ways to prevent disease”.

This white paper offers an overview of in-process COVID-19 vaccine research and how UV/VIS Excellence spectrophotometers can increase speed and accuracy when characterizing vaccine candidates and their components.

UV/Vis spectrophotometry provides fast, easy and accurate characterization of components such as nucleic acids (i.e. DNA/RNA), proteins, additives/preservatives, etc. and can impact the time-to-result for both downstream and upstream processes including quality control.
