Project Details: The institute was inaugurated on 24th April, 2016. The facility will be for the manufacture of DPT and TT vaccine. TT vaccine has been commercialized from this facility for Universal Immunization Programme use and production of DPT bulk has been initiated. CRI is exploring the feasibility of establishing WHO prequalified cGMP compliant manufacturing facility for yellow fever vaccine. This will enable the institute to supply yellow fever vaccine to African and Latin American countries. The institute has plans to manufacture all vaccines viz., Japanese encephalitis vaccine, rabies vaccine and typhoid vaccine, which were earlier manufactured in the Institute, after establishing CGMP compliant facilities and application of recent technological advancements. CRI plans to create state of the art, fully dedicated CGMP compliant laboratory for research on vaccine development and various other public health related issues. The institute plans to undertake research on newer vaccine candidates for existing and emerging diseases and to manufacture more efficacious and safer vaccines. CRI is in process of acquiring 128 bighas of land from Himachal Pradesh Government for creation of CGMP compliant facility for manufacturing of therapeutic anti-sera. CRI has started apprenticeship training for maintenance of high end machinery and equipment that have been installed with creation of new cGMP facility for production of DPT vaccine in the institute. The institute is involved in manufacture and supply of various lifesaving therapeutic antisera for snake bites, rabies and diphtheria, and supplies yellow fever vaccine to different parts of the country. Diagnostic reagents such as diagnostic antigens for typhoid, typhus fever and brucellosis and diagnostic antisera for cholera and salmonella are also manufactured and supplied to various institutions.
