Cold chain management solutions company Modality Solutions has announced it will sponsor one of the largest events for temperature controlled life science supply chains, 14th Annual Cold Chain Management Logistics Global Forum.

Joined by 850 temperature-controlled life science leaders, the company will also be presenting an innovative approach to understanding thermal passive shipper performance, as well as hosting and presenting the second day’s pre-conference workshop ‘Using Performance Curves to Define OQ Test Profiles and Optimal Designs for Passive Shipping Containers’.

Modality Solutions’ Principal Paul Harber and Senior Engineering Advisor of Eli Lilly & Company Bernard McGarvey will examine the current approaches to selecting passive shippers and how they can fail. How to evaluate lane data and compile it into a thermal profile for use in qualification will be discussed, as well as performance curves for passive shippers, how they can be used, and the methodologies of development. Participants will take away tools and a methodology for defining shipper capabilities with a performance curve and knowledge of how to quantify the risk of failure within specified lanes.

In its fourteenth installment, the Cold Chain Global Forum has significantly expanded its topic focuses, session formats, speaking faculty, and vendor options to help meet the industry’s emerging and ongoing challenges for 2016. The event is designed to include eight pre-conference workshops, two in-depth master classes, two days of main conference sessions, roundtable discussions, and panel discussions, as well as more than 14 hours of networking to discuss the most important challenges, effective strategies, and solutions within the cold chain industry.

Modality Solutions’ president Gary Hutchinson said: "We encourage attendees to stop by our conference booth 423 to ask questions about their cold chain thermal packaging, transport validation, and logistics challenges.

"We are committed to helping life science companies explore cost-reduction strategies, understand changing industry standards, and initiate risk management processes to ensure compliance, quality and product integrity.

"IQPC’s divisional director of cold chain portfolio Claudia Rubino said: "We’re thrilled to head back to Boston once again for the Cold Chain Global Forum.

"The Global Forum continues to be the leading event for temperature-controlled life science supply chains, and we’re pleased to have Modality Solutions partner with us to help make the event a success."

Modality Solutions will be present from 26 September to 30 September at the Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
