We have recently become aware that our website has been used to falsely call into question the safety of the vaccines developed for COVID-19 and want to address this misrepresentation.

While ALC-0315 and ALC-0159 are being safely used in the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine, the material that Echelon Biosciences is making and selling is not being used in vaccine production and is only for research use in laboratories. When sold as laboratory products, the manufacturing and testing processes do not need to be as strict as they do when the same product is being administered to people. That is the reason why we state on our website that the material we make is for research use only and not for human use. It is not a statement that ALC-0315 and ALC-0159 are unsafe.

The companies who manufacture ALC-0315, ALC-0159, and other components for the vaccine are following Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards (as required by the FDA) and their facilities are inspected to ensure that their manufacturing processes are controlled and safe for human use.

We hope this clarifies any confusion regarding our products and the language on our website. Additional questions and requests for information can be directed to echelon@echelon-inc.com
