Novartis's United States Flu Cell Culture Facility in Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA represents a breakthrough use of innovative technology and development of a large scale manufacturing process to produce seasonal and pandemic influenza vaccines. This innovative process breaks with the 50-year tradition of utilizing eggs for the method of growing the virus in favor of a ground-breaking cell culture technology that offers many potential advantages over the traditional manufacturing process for flu vaccines. These advantages include process raw materials that are readily available and not threatened by pandemic events and closed-system bioreactors that reduce the required biosafety level for the manufacturing space.

The proprietary technology at Novartis's United States Flu Cell Culture Facility enables flexible and fast start-up of vaccine manufacturing, offering rapid response to potential pandemic influenza threats while fulfilling the need for seasonal influenza vaccines. This project introduces a promising new path for vaccine production, and exemplifies the type of advancements in pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturing technology that the FOYA program seeks to recognize. In honor of this accomplishment, Novartis is named the 2013 Facility of the Year Awards Overall Winner
