Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Faced with rising volumes of regulations, such as new Good Distribution Practices, pharmaceutical laboratories and their partners (clinical trial and logistics operators or specialists in the last mile of the cold chain) are looking for more efficient packaging solutions. Product ranges require temperature-controlled transportation, and the demand in this area is continually on the rise.

Tight Budgetary Restrictions

All these imperatives – and tight budget controls, in particular – are prompting purchasing and logistics departments in the cold chain to permanently optimise their transport costs. One upshot of this trend has been the shift from active to passive systems observed in recent years.

Passive isothermal packaging is cheaper, lighter and more flexible and currently offers such high standards of performance that the use of active isothermal packaging no longer makes any economic sense for certain destinations.

Conveying Medical Guidance in Clinical Trials – A Survey

Europital Medical Consultancy

With the incremental demand for proactive safety surveillance throughout the conduct of clinical trials, the role of Medical Management is at the fore in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the participants. The complex responsibilities of a Medical Monitor (MM) starts from the design and development phase, through to study close out. Understanding the principle behind the protocol and the prospective medical solution the study would deliver forms the bloodline for the MM role. Often, the MM is the face of contact for both the site personnel and the study team members with regard to medical, safety and scientific issues within the project. When it comes to medical guidance, the communication channel used to deliver solutions contributes to a large extent in effectively managing decisive situations. Our previous study on acquiring medical guidance from an operations team perspective revealed that e-mails were the most used communication method (see the article, 'Talking Points', in ICT November 2014). In our efforts to further strengthen the mode of medical guidance delivery, we designed a survey to study the existing trend and constraints in this communication chain management, as outlined here.
