Temperature-Sensitive Packaging and Distribution for Biopharmaceuticals

Cold Chain Technologies and the Parenteral Drug Assn. announce Oct. 25-26 course to better achieve an effective cold chain.

Cold Chain Technologies (CCT), a source for temperature-controlled packaging for all segments of the life science supply chain, and the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), the global facilitator of science, technology and regulatory information, announced, "Temperature Sensitive Packaging and Distribution for Biopharmaceuticals," a new two-day course offering.

The "Temperature Sensitive Packaging and Distribution for Biopharmaceuticals" course is for professionals employed in roles such as Regulatory Compliance, Quality Assurance, Packaging, Validation and Process Development. Upon completion of the course, attendees will understand the variables involved in designing a thermal packaging system, and learn how to develop and evaluate shipping systems based on a set of requirements including the implementation of a temperature monitoring program for their organization.

"We are very excited to partner with the Parental Drug Association in sharing the best practices to properly specify and evaluate cold chain packaging.  Having a sound understanding of the technical background of cold chain shippers is essential to achieving a safe and cost effective cold chain," says Geoff Kaiser, CCT’s Director of Engineering & Technical Services.

Registrants will gain hands-on experience with the materials and equipment used in today's thermal packaging development as well as the tools needed to properly select, evaluate and qualify thermal packaging in the future.

With the rapid growth of temperature-sensitive therapies, new and frequently changing regulations, the "Temperature Sensitive Packaging and Distribution for Biopharmaceuticals" course will also offer education on regulatory guidelines and industry best practices with key insights into the PDA's peer developed and reviewed guidance documents.

The "Temperature Sensitive Packaging and Distribution for Biopharmaceuticals" course will be held Oct. 25 â€“ 26, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST at CCT's headquarters in Franklin, MA. Participants of the course may request to receive 1.2 Continuing Education Units (CEU).  In addition, course materials, breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided both days.
