To say managing cold chain decisions in pharmaceutical manufacturing are complicated is a huge understatement. What storage container can withstand the rigors of cold temperature and transportation? Will it keep product safe during shipping? How will the product temperature be monitored and maintained? How will product location be tracked across the globe?
Certainly, there is no way around the extreme conditions bulk drug substances are subjected to when getting from point A to point B. Although logistics solutions like RFID tags and temperature sensors have become common to track and monitor products in-transit, the single-use storage containers that so many manufacturers rely on are often not up to the challenge of keeping product secure.
In this article learn about new materials being considered for single-use cold chain storage containers, to reduce or eliminate issues with durability at cold temperatures.
