Protective Packaging

Pharmaceutical companies and their logistics partners are enjoying more availability and scope of temperature-controlled distribution lanes within pharma supply chains than ever before. This means more choice when specifying thermal protection solutions that are both cost-effective and fit for purpose.

This has led to the current trend of moving away from temperature-controlled packaging, particularly as well-controlled distribution lanes and effective thermal covers become the norm. Designed to provide a greater level of protection within uncontrolled distribution lanes and general cargo facilities, temperature-controlled packaging can be costly and offer low payload efficiency, particularly for controlled distribution lanes where they are often over-engineered and provide a higher level of protection than actually required.

As a result, thermal protection solutions are becoming increasingly popular. However, this is bringing its own set of challenges, including a lack of a consistent approach to product performance assessment.

Bio/Pharmaceutical Methods: Do your Analytical Methods Hold Up to Regulatory Scrutiny?

Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing

As FDA guidelines evolve and drug products on the market begin to age, bio/pharmaceutical manufacturers face scrutiny of the original methods used to support these products. Therefore, manufacturers must re-evaluate these methods to ensure they comply with current FDA expectations. Some manufacturers are even facing consent decrees imposed by the agency requiring them to bring methods up to current standards within a specified timeframe. This exercise requires significant amounts of time and resources, which many manufacturers do not have since they are focused on getting their next products to market. For that reason, some clients have been turning to Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories for support.
