Our compliant cold chain validation strategies include transport validation master planning, optimal thermal packaging selection, transport simulation, product formulation testing, and optimal transport lane selection to ensure maximum results with repeatable outcomes.
Why go it alone? We can get your biopharmaceutical cold chain validated for the most stringent product specifications.
Regulatory Filing Support
Leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies are incorporating simulated transport testing of their drug formulations early on during stability forecasting at the developmental phase. We provide best practice advice in regulatory compliance and assist with regulatory agency correspondence correction to ensure timely approval.
Modality Solutions has the expertise in drug product formulation testing, thermal package engineering, and process validation to assure regulatory compliance and accelerated approval. Rising complexity of new drug formulations such as monoclonal antibodies, gene & cell therapy and orphan drugs have introduced new challenges for your cold supply chain and validation approach.
Transport Simulation Testing
Our Advantage Transport Simulation Laboratory™ has the unique ability to concurrently test for not only shock, vibration, and temperature but also pressure and humidity. These 5 transport or environmental hazards are all factors that can impact drug product quality and packaging integrity.
Based on our simulation test results we design and validate cold chain transportation for a variety of drug formulations such as monoclonal antibodies for global distribution, individualized cancer cell therapies for personalized medicine, and vaccines. Our unique technology is designed specifically to assure your drug formulation is appropriately packaged and shipped to withstand all environmental and transport exposures.
Thermal Packaging Selection, Qualification and Implementation
Our design, develop, and qualification for any active or passive thermal packaging solution is carried out by expert engineers with industry-wide recognition. Establishing and maintaining regulatory compliance with global regulations is our main focus. A process validation master plan, with protocols and reports to GDP standards, are an approach that guarantees your success.
