Insights On Manufacturing Logistics

  1. Reducing Cost within Advanced Therapy Clinical Trials

    The challenge for advanced therapy companies is that they need to develop a supply chain that delivers their therapy, at scale, without adding significantly to the cost of goods sold (COGS). In this case study, we’ll demonstrate how a company saw 55% cost savings across its distribution system, and increased visibility of its supply chain through meaningful data through partnering with Fisher BioServices and Fisher Clinical Services.

  2. Controlling Complexity (Not Cost) Of Advanced Therapy Supply Chains

    Due to the short shelf life and clinical criticality of advanced therapies, their supply chains are often highly complex.  Once efficacy and safety is demonstrated, the focus of advanced therapy developers moves to controlling cost.  However, the biggest cost within the supply chain is caused by its complexity.  In this article, we will share why the advanced therapy supply chain is so complex and how this complexity correlates to cost.

  3. Development Of Qualified Cold Chain Solution For Vaccine Transport To Uganda

    Maintaining the cold chain is a challenge when handling biologics such as vaccines, particularly when the clinic is in a remote location. Learn more about how Fisher Bioservices developed a qualified cold chain solution to transport Ebola vaccines to Uganda.

  4. Cell Therapy Manufacturing: The Supply Chain Challenge

    Overcoming the challenges of manufacturing and administering a complex product to any patient is critical for delivering cell therapies. Here two industry experts provide practical advice on strategies to meet supply chain challenges.

  5. Distributed Biobanking: An End To End Solution For FFPE Tissue Block Management

    From a historical perspective, there are millions of FFPE tissue blocks in storage and in use today. Most storage process work well for small numbers of samples, but is quickly overrun when thousands of blocks begin to accumulate. A new end to end system has been developed and implemented in several locations worldwide to address the issues encountered with FFPE block storage, retrieval and restocking.

  6. Is Your CMO Ready For Serialization And Aggregation?

    While some are waiting for mandates for traceability, serialization, and aggregation, others are recognizing the inevitability of these strategies. Does your CMO have a dedicated traceability operation within the company and serialization efforts in place?

  7. Minimizing Errors And Saving Time In Drug Receipt Processes

    The speed-accuracy trade-off is a well-known phenomenon in psychology for processes requiring human input: the faster you go, the more likely it is that errors will be introduced into the system. This presents a major challenge for complex supply chains that demand both efficiency and accuracy. This case study shows the steps Fisher Bioservices took to improve efficiency and accuracy to combat the complexities of the drug receipt process.

  8. Flexsafe® 2D And 3D Pre-Designed Solutions (PDS) For Storage And Shipping In All Process Steps

    The growing adoption of single-use (SU) in all process steps of cGMP clinical and commercial production requires enhanced assurance of supply and robust product performance. This innovative bioprocessing bag technology is designed to meet the new challenges of assurance of supply and consistent performance for every process step and application of biomanufacture.

  9. The Strength And Flexibility Of Flexsafe®, Flexboy® & Celsius® Bags Ensure Their Robustness In All Applications

    The costs are high when leakage occurs during steps that are critical to patient safety. Read how the robustness of Sartorius films makes them safe and easy to use for all process steps and applications.

  10. Case Studies In Supply Chain Management: Getting It Right From The Start

    Consistent management and communication are the keys to success when managing the supply chain of any advanced therapy clinical trial. In this article, we’ll review two case studies that demonstrate the importance of supply chain management by focusing on scaling up for commercial distribution and on packaging challenges within a cryogenic environment.
