INSIGHTS ON PHARMACEUTICAL LOGISTICS

  • Liquid Nitrogen-Free Cryopreservation For Sustainability

    This study focuses on the running costs and carbon emissions associated with cryopreservation equipment, comparing a liquid nitrogen (LN2)-free controlled-rate freezer with a typical liquid nitrogen-based system. The environmental implications of using liquid nitrogen for cell freezing are explored along with carbon emissions during the manufacture, transportation, and operation of LN2-free controlled-rate freezers.

  • Digitally Connected, Liquid Nitrogen-Free Cryogenic Cold Chain

    A cryogenic cold chain starts with cryopreservation. Achieve consistent results without liquid nitrogen, scale effectively and efficiently, and get traceable digital records.

  • CoolPall™ Flex Flexible Pallet System

    This video will give you an overview of the Pelican Biothermal flexible pallet system. View details on the three available sizes and the temperature ranges of the systems.

  • Rapidly Switching To Direct-To-Patient Protocols

    In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, clinical trial sponsors are having to quickly find alternative methods to keep their trials moving forward as challenges arise such as clinical sites having to close, or patients being unable to travel to the sites for safety reasons. This article discusses the factors which need to be considered for clinical trial sponsors to incorporate Direct-To-Patient (DTP) protocols rapidly, to help navigate the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • A Modern Take On Cell Therapy Logistics
    7/31/2020

    Here are my highlights on an International Society of Cellular Therapy (ISCT) 2020 session that introduced a new way to ship and transport cellular materials, putting patients front and center.

  • Cold Chain In 2021: COVID-19's Continued Influence
    12/22/2020

    As we eagerly enter 2021 and prepare this year’s cold chain industry predictions, we reflect on the events of 2020. Our three predictions all show how COVID-19’s influence persists, and in some instances, may have a long-term ripple effect.

  • Clinical Supply Optimization: Enhanced Service Model Saves Client Time On Supplies
    12/26/2019

    The Vice President of manufacturing for a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company faced an avalanche of work when a reorganization left him without a clinical supply manager. Planning to start 5 new clinical trials in 6 months while managing quality assurance, manufacturing, and supplies for new and ongoing studies, he turned to his Fisher Clinical Services account executive with a simple question: “How am I going to do all that?”

  • Robust And Consistent Frozen Storage And Shipment
    6/11/2021

    Learn how a reliable cold chain operation requires the right commercial scale solution, from controlled bag film production to a unified process including reliable control mechanisms.

  • Ensuring The Efficacy Of Probiotic Products
    10/29/2019

    There is growing interest among consumers in verifying that the dietary supplements they take are safe and efficacious. The concern over whether consumers are getting the product as it is described on the label is rooted in one vital and transformative fact: probiotics are living organisms that are highly sensitive to humidity and oxygen. In the absence of proper handling and packaging, the efficacy of probiotic products can be compromised at any point of the packaging, storage and transportation process, inversely impacting shelf life and product viability and efficacy for the consumer.

PHARMACEUTICAL LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS

  • Bags fitting your applications for preserving bulk drug substances.

  • Changes to the protocol such as dosage changes, increases or decreases in volumes, changes to expiry dates, or inclusion/exclusion of countries that weren’t part of the original plan can impact clinical trial packaging. You need a partner that can help you accurately identify and predict issues that might impact schedules, while remaining nimble to adjust to changes.

  • During the COVID-19 global crisis, local and global leaders are forced to make rapid decisions about critical materials and products, which are desperately limited and moving through a supply chain that was never designed for such a crisis. Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA Quintiq solutions have been used extensively to solve similar challenges, and we have developed a methodology to apply our expertise and help make a difference today.

  • Catalent Biologics is your one integrated partner with the expertise to get your biologics to market faster. We have the passion to help you accelerate, simplify, and de-risk your biologics from development and manufacturing to fill/finish, to clinical supply, and commercial launch.

  • Freezing collected biomass in bottles for later use takes up valuable space in freezers – especially if the bottles are only partially filled. Use of sterilized, single-use Thermo Scientific™ CentriPAK™ BioProcess Containers (BPC) and the Thermo Scientific™ Sorvall™ BIOS 16 Centrifuge is an excellent method to achieve maximum biomass recovery while using minimal freezer storage space.
