Moderna and Catalent collaborate to manufacture vials for COVID-19 vaccine

April 8, 2021

Moderna and Catalent – a provider of advanced delivery technologies, development, and manufacturing solutions – announced the expansion of their strategic collaboration to dedicate a new high-speed vial filling line for the manufacture of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and potentially other investigational programs in Moderna’s pipeline, at Catalent’s biologics facility in Bloomington, IN, according to a news release.

In June 2020, Catalent and Moderna announced that Catalent would provide aseptic vial filling and packaging from its Bloomington site to support production of an initial 100 million doses of Moderna’s vaccine.

As part of this expanded agreement, Catalent will now dedicate to Moderna’s use a new high-speed filling line at the site through June 2023, which can be used to manufacture the COVID-19 vaccine and potentially additional investigational programs in Moderna’s clinical pipeline.
