MilliporeSigma’s St. Louis workers are on front line of coronavirus fight

In the race to develop drugs and vaccines for COVID-19, MilliporeSigma rarely grabs any headlines, but it’s a critical supplier to companies that do. When you read about a lab working on a treatment for the coronavirus-caused disease, chances are good that it’s using reagents, or substances that cause chemical reactions, made by MilliporeSigma in St. Louis. Many vaccine scientists are using cell lines and culture media — the broth in which cells are grown — developed here in MilliporeSigma labs.
