We’re proud to count among our customers a number of leading biotech and pharmaceutical firms that are working around the clock to develop treatments and vaccines for Ebola other infectious diseases – to stop them in their tracks before they reach epidemic or pandemic proportions. We’re excited about the innovative work they’re doing and the opportunity to support their efforts through products and services that enable all stages of their research and production. Examples of our support include:

  • Collaborating with Novavax, which is using our Chromabolt® PrePacked Column and Pod filters in the rapid manufacturing process for its Zaire (Makona) Ebolavirus Glycoprotein Vaccine.
  • Working to fast-track orders for critical single-use products to support treatments for Ebola and other infectious diseases in development by several key customers, including Crucell, GSK and Emergent BioSolutions.

We’re also supporting the fight against Ebola and other deadly epidemics through grants and direct donations:
