RACI NSW Pharmaceutical Sciences Group Webinar – mRNA vaccine development

February 24, 2021  @ 9.30am – 11am

NSW Pharm Group in collaboration with ATA Scientific recently hosted the webinar:

Identification of a Novel LNP Delivery System for a COVID-19 Self-amplifying mRNA Vaccine and Enabling Rapid Development using Microfluidics


RNA vaccines are a relatively recent innovation but are at the forefront of the many vaccine technologies providing solutions for the COVID-19 pandemic. This talk shows how PNI have identified a potent LNP delivery system for self-amplifying and how this is now been applied to COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.
In addition, it describes why the NanoAssemblr® GMP System is being used by many companies to provide accelerated clinical and commercial development of COVID-19 nanomedicines, by reducing the number of engineering batches through seamless transfer of manufacturing process: by eliminating cleaning validation by using a fully disposable single use fluid path; by supporting all stages of clinical development through a modular continuous flow pumping system capable of producing volumes of 200 mL to >100 L at outputs up to 12 L/h; and, by enabling flexibility and redundancy in clinical development plans through simple tech transfer of the GMP System to any global non-GMP and GMP facility.


Dr Andrew Geall, CEO RNA Consulting, LLC and Chief Scientific Officer of Precision NanoSystems Inc. (PNI), based in Vancouver, Canada. Andrew and the company are focused on the creation and commercial development of transformative nanoparticle medicines with its partners using their proprietary LNP delivery systems and microfluidic formulation platform, current cutting edge technology. Andrew has enjoyed a most distinguished career in vaccine technologies in senior positions within therapeutic goods organisations. Further details can be found at https://www.linkedin.com/in/andy-geall-116a9624

SPG 29th Thompson Prize meeting

November 26, 2020

ATA Scientific was a proud sponsor of the annual 29th Thompson Prize Talks hosted by Dr. Bhumika Shah from Macquarie Uni. Unfortunately, while all were keen to have the event in-person, the current CoVID19 restrictions precluded us from doing so. Hence, the Thompson Prize was held as a virtual meeting format. We, ATA Scientific, presented a 10 min talk discussing our latest technologies including the new Fluidity One-W, for high sensitivity in-solution analysis of protein size and protein interaction affinity.

Australasian Extracellular Vesicles (AEV) 2020

February 11-12, 2020

ATA Scientific was a silver sponsor at the Australasian Extracellular Vesicles (AEV) 2020 conference held in Auckland. Topics covered at the meeting examined aspects of EV research ranging from the cell biology surrounding their biogenesis, to their functional roles in inter-cellular communication, physiology and pathology and advances in diagnostics and therapeutics. 

We  also be hosted a one day training course “Fundamentals of EVs” at University of Auckland on 11 February. This training course focused on the use of the Malvern NanoSight NS300. This system provides high resolution size distribution and concentration measurements for individual nanoparticles while a fluorescence mode allows differentiation of fluorescing particles.
