Hot Topics in the Pharmaceutical Cold Chain

Temperature monitoring for pharmaceutical products is increasingly a hot topic.  It’s not just due to the growth in temperature sensitive biopharmaceuticals either.  Even traditional pharmaceuticals can require constant monitoring for ambient temperature and serialization control to ensure that the right products arrive in the right condition at the right place while addressing upcoming ePedigree requirements.

Industry consultant Peter Norton recently published three short articles on several key topics.  I reference them below along with links for reading them:

  • Air cargo and the Cold Chain: how do you monitor temperature sensitive goods in air cargo holds and long haul differences.
  • Inference: gaining the ability to monitor a product and integrate the data on the outside of the box with data about the product from inside the box.
  • The Last Mile: ensuring cold chain integrity all the way through to the consumer or health care provider.

Look for additional upcoming articles on other hot topics in the pharmaceutical cold supply chain.
