Ziccum CEO to present at international mRNA Summit in Berlin

Lund, Jan 18, 2023 —Ziccum AB CEO Ann Gidner will present LaminarPace, the company’s unique mass transfer drying methodology, at the mRNA-based Therapeutics Summit in Berlin 24 – 26 January. It is the leading European event for mRNA innovation expertise in Europe. On October 24, 2022 Ziccum announced that it had generated proof of successful nebulization and drying of vaccine lipid nanoparticles (LNP) in the latest stage of its ongoing in-house mRNA project. mRNA is the core strategic priority for the company.

On January 25th, Ziccum CEO Ann Gidner will present LaminarPace to an audience of senior Pharmaceutical industry decision makers, scientists and key opinion leaders in Berlin at an event described as ‘the most comprehensive, industry-leading meeting for mRNA experts in Europe’.

mRNA in lipid nanoparticle (LNP) formulation is the break-through innovation that enabled mass-vaccination against Covid-19 around the globe. mRNA research and investment continues accelerating at great speed, and for Ziccum is the top strategic priority. LaminarPace, the company’s ambient drying methodology based on the principle of mass transfer, efficiently turns liquid biopharmaceuticals into thermostable dry powders. In October 2022, Ziccum announced that it had nebulized and dried lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) in the latest stage of its proprietary mRNA project.

Ziccum’s presentation is titled LaminarPace: a novel unit operation successfully drying mRNA/LNP by mass transfer. It will cover LaminarPace’s unique ambient drying methodology based on the principle of mass transfer and how it dries liquid biopharmaceuticals into thermostable dry powders – a normally very challenging step – thanks to greatly reduced stress factors in the unique process.

It will describe how the well-defined dry powder delivered by LaminarPace can be reconstituted or used for novel administration routes, and how the system is being developed by Ziccum as a Pharmaceutical unit of production.

CEO Ann Gidner: “Our capabilities within mRNA could be a game changer for this innovative industry. Mass transfer drying, avoiding the difficulties of existing technologies and achieving thermostable formulations, could open up many new possibilities and opportunities. We look forward to sharing ideas with our colleagues in the field at this exciting event.”
