Health Care at Evonik

The development of the first mRNA vaccines was a milestone in the struggle against the coronavirus pandemic. Evonik supplies a crucial technology for transporting these gene-based vaccines to the right target site in the human body: lipid nanoparticles. Without them, the vaccine would be ineffective. 

In Canada and the USA, Evonik has been developing and producing lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) for years. LNPs are absolutely essential for the effectiveness of mRNA-based vaccines: These ultrafine particles made of fats and waxes envelop the mRNA and transport it into human cells. Without the protective sheath of LNPs, the mRNA would disintegrate inside the body within seconds.
