Biological E to Supply Pentavalent Vaccine to VACSERA
Hyderabad, June 27 (INN): Biological E Limited (BioE) today announced that it has entered into a long term supply agreement with VACSERA (and its subsidiary Egyvac), an Egyptian vaccines company under the Ministry of Health of Egypt, for the Pentavalent vaccine manufactured by Bio E.
VACSERA is the sole vaccine procurement agency of Egypt. Under the agreement, Bio E’s Pentavalent vaccine shall be procured exclusively by VACSERA.
Biological E’s Liquid Pentavalent vaccine was prequalified by WHO in 2012 and since then it has been exported to several countries. The company was in news recently for entering into a five year Pentavalent supply arrangement with GAVI and for its Joint Venture with GSK for the development and commercialization of the IPV containing Hexavalent vaccine.
Narender Mantena of Biological E Limited said, “We are happy that after a rigorous process of selection, the company was chosen as a credible supplier by VACSERA for supplying the Pentavalent Vaccine.
