Roundtable: Cool Chain Integration

All Together Now

Cool chain logistics is a complex but crucial part of the pharma industry. At a roundtable discussion held last year by the Cool Chain Association – attended by a number of its board members and other interested parties – supply chain integration was the main talking point.
Second-User Equipment

Every Penny Counts

Once the remit of cash-strapped start-ups, purchasing of second-user equipment is now on the rise – even among global, multi-facility pharma giants. EquipNet’s Ben Potenza shares his golden rules for companies considering this route.

Time lapse photography to demonstrate the potential antimicrobial abilities of Dycem contamination control flooring


A defined volume of bioluminescent reporter bacteria was deposited onto 20 mm x 20 mm coupons of Dycem flooring, vinyl tile and ITW Alma tacky mat. Through monitoring of bacterial bioluminescence, metabolic inhibition was observed on all three surfaces however the effect occurred more rapidly on Dycem flooring than on vinyl or ITW Alma. Recovery counts after three hours of exposure to the floor surfaces showed between a 65% and 100% decrease in the number of viable organisms recovered from Dycem flooring compared to controls. On vinyl and ITW Alma flooring, there were slight increases in the number of viable survivors recovered compared to controls. Dycem flooring inhibited the metabolic activity and reduced the number of viable survivors recovered of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium DT104 pGLITE. It remains unclear as to whether this effect is attributable to the impregnated biocide or rapid drying of the inoculum on this surface.
