The Right Place. The Right Time. At Just The Right Temperature.
Maintaining a controlled room temperature (CRT) during transport is more complex than it sounds. In this white paper, find out how UPS's unique temperature-sensitive services and global network make UPS the obvious choice for products that require a safe, consistent temperature throughout the supply chain.

A facility monitoring system (FMS) is a process monitoring tool that collects data from sensors, such as optical particle counters, differential pressure sensors, and temperature probes, in real time. Other names for it are independent monitoring system (IMS) or environmental monitoring system (EMS). The software presents that data as information; real-time alarms notify facility operators of alert limits to enable an immediate response to an unwanted event or excursion. Reports and trend graphs can also be produced.
By Malcolm McLaughlin, Alconox, Inc. The benefits of employing aqueous cleaning in pharmaceutical manufacturing are numerous. Virtually any pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment — from tablet press to a stainless steel mixing tank — can achieve their defined, critically clean criteria using aqueous cleaning.
By Sharon Nowak, K-Tron Volumetric feeders control flow by discharging a consistent volume of material. They are best used when bulk density is consistent, long-term feed accuracy is not critical, and feeder performance does not need to be documented.
By Jason Frye, Flow Sciences Inc. When mixing or blending active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) or high-potency APIs (HPAPIs), containment is king. Good laboratory practices (GLP), and the proper equipment designed and calibrated to facilitate GLP when transferring, mixing, or blending APIs, can reduce product waste and product contamination, and minimize lost profit, as well as create a healthier, contaminant-free environment for lab operators.
By Mark Wiesman, DDN The globalization of the life sciences industry — coupled with the shift from blockbuster drug development toward sophisticated, targeted molecular development — is resulting in a highly complex supply chain. To successfully meet the demands of globalization, while mitigating associated risks, the life sciences supply chain must become extremely flexible.
By Bernard Fenner, Bosch Packaging Technology This is the first in a series of articles examining the role that packaging will play in some of the key trends in the pharma industry, with a focus on convenience and compliance. Future articles will examine safety, in both production and final product, as well as increasing automation and efficiency.
