Aiding Pharma in Airfreight

Setting up a quality cold chain in the airfreight of time- and temperaturesensitive pharmaceuticals is not an easy task. Airfreight is known for its unique conditions.

Airfreight cargo is subjected to the local weather conditions, sunshine or solar power on the products, greenhouse effects, wind chill, etc, and extreme temperature environments (hot and cold), especially on tarmac locations where the airplanes are loaded in open-air. Cost-efficiency is another consideration, especially on low-price products and bigger volumes. Also, what about regulations and laws or norms, what about processes at the actors so the products are handled correctly, and so on? These are all questions that are challenged within the complete airfreight industry to create an efficient quality cold chain from shipper to receiver.

To offer a possible solution, the company Krautz-Temax engineered a unique thermal blanket that offers a high-performing thermal resistance (hot and cold), offers resistance against solar power and greenhouse effects, has a minimal payload impact, offers a Good Distribution Practice-compliant solution, and is fully recyclable and even reproducible to raw material level, guaranteeing a minimal impact on the ecological footprint.

Show germs the final curtain

Teknomek’s PVC strip curtains are renowned for helping reduce hygiene risk by keeping differently graded areas within cleanrooms separate. The company has now extended this protection by adding anti-microbial protection embedded within the PVC to prevent the growth of bacteria, including MRSA, and further minimising the risk of cross-contamination. The anti-microbial curtains are built to last, with silver ions incorporated during the manufacturing process, providing significantly greater microbial resistance. The hard-wearing curtains suitable for use in temperatures of +38°C to - 10°C.
