Preparing to Sample Cold Chain Product


Today’s rapidly changing pharmaceutical development pipelines are producing increasing numbers of large molecule products and biopharmaceuticals for specialized therapies. As a result, there are an ever growing number of products that require cold chain storage and fulfilment, with associated product quality and integrity concerns. 

Manufacturers are sampling these products either through representative carry or, more predominantly, “sample send” programs (e.g. Direct to Practitioner – DTP). In many cases, manufacturers are facing the challenges of handling these types of products for the first time within their DTP programs. Among the challenges they face are determining best channel for sampling, ensuring appropriate temperature controls from storage to final delivery, and choosing suitable packaging solutions.

This webinar will touch upon those challenges and will identify various ways that the industry is addressing these concerns.

Join us on June 7th at 3PM London/10AM New York. In addition to discussing how these challenges are being addressed, this webinar will provide examples of how Priority Solutions International is deploying flexible solutions to ensure secure, efficient and cost-effective cold chain sample send programs. The webinar will conclude with top considerations when preparing for implementation.
