The Future’s Bright

How do you think your sector has developed over the past 10 years?

Temperature controlled packaging has become a defined sector in the last 10 years, driven by the increasing use of biological products in the healthcare sector, such as erythropoietins for the treatment of anaemia and beta interferons for multiple sclerosis, anti-inflammatories and cancer treatments. These largely protein-based products are highly sensitive to temperature, requiring careful storage and distribution in order to be effective. The range from +2 to +8°C is such a prevalent specification that it has become a de facto standard. Other temperature requirements have since emerged, most notably temperate (+15 to +25 or +30°C). Regulatory awareness, notably that of the US FDA and the UK’s MHRA, and industry practice in the form of GxPs have kept pace with these demands, as has an array of shipping technologies, both passive and active.

What would you perceive as the biggest challenges facing the industry over the next 10 years?

The challenge now is to harmonise standards across an increasingly global platform. Industrial and international cooperation...

Quality By Design

Biopharma Group

Quality by Design (QbD) is a systematic approach to development that begins with the defined objectives and emphasizes science and quality risk management in order to achieve those goals. QbD ensures that the quality of the product is built into production processes from the outset, rather than being tested after development has already commenced.
