The future of lyophilization continues to balance higher upfront costs versus long-term benefits as improvements in conventional lyophilization technology efficiency are sought. If your product uses cold chain logistics, requires user pipetting, or has a short expiration window, there are significant benefits to introducing a lyophilized version.
Life science companies, from reagents to diagnostics, rely on cold chain shipping. A vital component in the chain is the ubiquitous polystyrene cooler. Yet, with restaurant polystyrene bans growing in prevalence, it is likely a matter of time before traditional shipping coolers and packing peanuts come under fire. However, even while polystyrene remains legal, consumers and environmentally-conscious organizations are beginning to shy away from its use. How can life science cold chain-dependent companies adapt to this shift?
Mega-trends are contributing to a boom in the biopharmaceutical industry. Biopharmaceutical manufacturers are accelerating drug development, optimizing productivity and investing in manufacturing capacity globally.

This video provides insight into Thermo Fisher Scientific’s primary and secondary packaging of clinical trial materials at the Horsham, UK site. This site also specializes in automated global distribution and in Cold Chain Management.
For a host of reasons, auto-injectors are becoming biopharma companies’ delivery method of choice for commercial use and late-stage clinical trials. Auto-injectors ensure that the prescribed dose of medication is delivered fully and completely,making it easier to track compliance in clinical trials.
Public health and medical research occasionally take unexpected turns that allow us to glimpse new wonders into the world we inhabit. Enlightened by the microbiome, those of us who support biomedical research by providing biological sample management have work to do.
What is the difference between qualification and validation? This question comes up frequently with both internal and external clients.
Maintaining the appropriate storage temperature of biological material is critical for downstream use. However, due to the complexity of this material and its sensitivity to temperature we are seeing an increase in non-traditional storage temperature requests. In this article, we’ll explore some of the reasons why this is occurring and the associated challenges.
The most common storage is ultra-low temperature storage, but the fastest-growing is cryogenic, in vapor phase liquid nitrogen. This transition is huge. Chain of temperature data and chain of custody in handling is imperative to the pharmaceutical industry of today. These additional factors partly explain the much higher cost of these therapies as well. The three primary issues are: capacity, regulatory, and risk. We’ll look briefly at all three.
