TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT

We provide the scientific and technical capability to ensure Seqirus products are among the best defences against influenza in the world

Seqirus draws on the experience of our parent company CSL, which has been developing influenza vaccines for over 100 years, as well as antivenoms and other vaccines. Our quadrivalent and MF59®-adjuvanted influenza vaccines reach more and more patients every year.

In 2017, Seqirus released an advanced cell-based influenza vaccine in the USA and achieved FDA approval for the next generation production process for cell-based technology. Each and every flu season, we use our deep technical expertise to ensure our technology platforms are performing at their best.

Optimising vaccine viruses

We evaluate and optimise candidate vaccine viruses from the WHO to speed up production and improve vaccine match. It is a constant process, as we manufacture a new formulation of influenza vaccine every six months.

Improvement of manufacturing technology

The flu virus changes all the time. We aim to stay ahead. Our scientists continuously improve and enhance the manufacturing and testing of our existing products, whilst pioneering the development of new products.

Cells - Needle into cell
Studying the potential of cell

Are you more like a bird than a mammal? We didn’t think so either. Our entirely cell based influenza vaccine may offer a closer match to circulating flu virus than egg-based influenza vaccines in some seasons .  More research is underway. 

People / Patients enjoying life
Boosting flu response

Older adults don’t respond as well to the standard influenza vaccine. Don’t worry! We developed an adjuvanted influenza vaccine, now a recommended choice for the people over 65 years of age in Australia.
