    Its high-tech bioprocessing equipment is being loaned to the New Zealand Covid-19 Vaccine Corporation.

    Corporation chief executive Dr Robert Feldman says a vaccine couldn't be made without this type of technology.

    He says they're working on a biobead vaccine, from components of the SARS virus.

    Feldman says they're gearing towards making the first production run for tests ahead of a clinical trial, which is slated for early 2022.
