Abstract: During the last few years virus like particles (VLPs) have become increasingly interesting for the production of vaccines. This development is explained by their excellent safety profile as well as a significant number of clinical studies showing strong and long-lasting protection. A further reason is the possibility of speeding up VLP vaccine manufacturing by implementing single-use (SU) technology in the case of mammalian and insect-cell-based processes, for which a multitude of SU devices up to middle-volume scale already exist. After briefly introducing the vaccine types and expression systems currently in use, this chapter turns to VLP vaccines and the insect cell/baculovirus expression vector system (IC/BEVS). Based on the main process characteristics and typical process flow of IC/BEVS-based VLP vaccine productions, suitable SU devices and their implementation are addressed. We subsequently report on the successful development of a fast, scalable benchtop production process generating a four-protein component influenza A H1N1 VLP vaccine candidate. This process is based on Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf)-9 cells and combines Redbiotec’s rePAXTM technology with obtainable SU devices for upstream (USP) and downstream processing (DSP).
