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?

Challenges of Analytical Method Transfer in the Pharmaceutical Industry

RSSL

The development and validation of suitable analytical methods is a critical part of the overall drug-development life-cycle. For the majority of products, particularly those that are clinically successful, the transfer of the analytical method between laboratories will be required. This process is designed to verify that a given laboratory is capable of performing a test method for its intended purpose. This can be performed either internally (at the same company), or, with the on-going increasing trend in outsourcing, to an external Contract Research or Development organisation (CRO or CDO).
