The role of cold chain storage in pharma

Cold chain pharmaceutical products, including modern biologic therapeutics such as monoclonal antibodies and vaccines, cellular and gene therapies, certain types of insulin, and some cancer treatments, require a reliable infrastructure for maintaining a precise temperature range when transporting from the manufacturer to the patient.

Cold chain services include temperature-controlled storage, packaging and distribution facilities at ambient, refrigerated, frozen, ultra-frozen, vapour-phase liquid nitrogen and liquid-phase liquid nitrogen conditions.

Pharmaceutical distribution warehouses

Pharmaceutical distribution warehouses play a major role in ensuring the safe storage and release of critical medical materials and supplies.

Warehouses can be temperature-controlled and climate-controlled spaces with state-of-the-art control and monitoring equipment to provide specific environmental conditions for effective cold chain storage.

Warehouses need to be GMP-compliant to protect against any kind of damage, contamination, mix-ups and degradation of the products.
