NeO is an innovative technology which replaces traditional freeze-dried vaccine pellets in glass vials with innovative effervescent tablets of vaccine in blister packs.
Each tablet contains a freeze-dried vaccine virus, packaged in a light-weight aluminum blister. Active vaccine ingredients are the same as the ones used for viral vaccines in glass vials.
The manufacturing process varies only after bulk antigen production: the live attenuated virus vaccine is freeze dried, then pressed into effervescent tablets before being packed into aluminum blister packs.
Reconstituting the vaccine is more user-friendly, as less work is needed to mix the freeze-dried vaccine and the water for vaccine preparation.
