“We are excited to have Elarex join the Boston CTA program. They bring tremendous Canadian innovation to US and beyond – imagine a new world where vaccines will not need a cold chain for storage and transportation!”, says Serban Georgescu, MD, Manager of the Boston Canadian Technology Accelerator.

Elarex Inc. is helping vaccine manufacturers escape the cold chain which can help them by reducing spoilage; improving the stability of new vaccine candidates; and by making LMIC markets more accessible when cold chain infrastructure is unreliable or unavailable.

The solution is a very straightforward, patented mixture of natural products that are considered safe by the US FDA and do not require freeze drying.  Many types of vaccines, small molecules, enzymes, biologics, DNA and mRNA-LNPs have all been shown to benefit from the stabilization offered by our technology.

Elarex Inc. is a privately held company, incorporated in Ontario, Canada.
