  • Wednesday, June 26, 2019

With the growth in biologics and biosimilar type drugs, there is an increase in demand for cold chain management solutions to handle the packaging, labelling, storage and shipping of refrigerated and frozen product. Appropriate cold chain solutions can help sponsors and CRO’s address the challenges of temperature-controlled conditions that could jeopardise the quality of these drugs and their clinical trials.

In this free webinar, the featured speakers will provide participants with valuable insights into cold chain management in clinical trials. Topics that will be covered include:

  • Selecting appropriate packaging based on temperature requirements
  • Understanding how temperature-sensitive trial materials are labelled
  • Temperature management technologies and solutions for clinical trials
  • Optimizing the cold chain distribution network
