Almac Clinical Services invites you to join our complimentary customer lunch and learn, Playing it cool – cold chain solutions for your clinical supply chain. We created this event to provide you with critical insights into the subject area of cold chain management in clinical trials.

With an increase in biologics and biosimilar type drugs being trialed, there is an increase in demand for cold chain management solutions in order to handle the packaging, labeling, storage, and shipping of refrigerated and frozen product.

Two of our key clinical supply experts, Bryan Thompson and Mark Clayton, will deliver a brief presentation to examine challenges faced with a temperature controlled clinical supply chain. During the presentation, Bryan and Mark will share their expertise and in-depth knowledge on topics such as:

  • Selecting appropriate packaging based on temperature requirements
  • Understanding how temperature sensitive trial materials are labelled
  • Temperature management technologies and solutions for clinical trials
  • Optimising the cold chain distribution network
