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.

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

Dycem

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.
