Argonaut Manufacturing Services has completed its initiative to expand filling capabilities of Viral Transport Media (VTM) used for sample collection devices that test for COVID-19. The push for development came in response to the needs of Argonaut’s clients and the global demand to increase the production of VTM. As a contract manufacturing organization, they work with many organizations currently in the thralls of COVID related test development, including those in life sciences, molecular diagnostics, and biopharma.

This decision is excellent news for Symbient and our clients. Many of which are developing products that would benefit from Argonaut’s new filling capabilities. Symbient focuses on in vitro diagnostics product development, so we often recommend Argonaut for filling or finish working. This work ranges from vial filling various transport media, lyophilized beads, or other dry lyophilized reagents utilized by the medical devices we help develop. Argonaut also offers other fill/finish services for drug products.
