Almac’s Clinical Services business announced the addition of refrigerated reusable shippers to its portfolio for the management and global distribution of temperature-controlled clinical supplies. Available as an option to replace single-use shippers for refrigerated shipments, 2°C to 8°C, the reusable shippers can reduce shipping and storage costs while maintaining payload capacity.
This latest addition is complementary to a range of cold chain management solutions that include a global team of cold chain experts, a strategic depot network, more than 3,000 pallets of dedicated, refrigerated storage facilities, and a proprietary Shipping Temperature Electronic Monitoring System (STEMS) allowing for same-day temperature data.
Features of the reusable shippers include identical product space with a smaller overall volume than single-use shippers, thus reducing shipping and storage costs. In addition, the environmental impact caused by single-use shippers is virtually eliminated, and clients will benefit from the removal of tedious destruction processes often required with single-use shippers.
The refrigerated shippers have been verified by Almac Quality for temperature accuracy and meet Almac’s quality standards.
Almac also plans to release reusable options for controlled, ambient shipments, 15°C to 25°C and frozen shipments, -25°C to -15°C in the near future.
