Shipper Return & Reuse - Making It Work for Clinical Trials, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 19, 2016) - In this webinar, featured speaker Royce Heap, Global Cold Chain Technology Lead at Fisher Clinical Services will examine the challenges faced in setting up a shipper reuse program, the various reuse models that can be adopted and the benefits of a successful program to the various parties involved. The live broadcast takes place on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 11am EDT (4pm BST/UK).

The maintenance of cold chain product integrity across the entire supply chain demands rigorous processes and cold chain expertise of the highest calibre - from packaging, handling, storage & distribution of temperature sensitive Investigational Medicinal Products (IMP), all the way to the investigator site.

In recent years the industry has seen a shift away from traditional Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) water-based shipping solutions to smaller, reusable, shippers with Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIP) and Phase Change Materials (PCM). Sponsors are demanding more robust systems and also have an increased awareness of the cost of disposal and the problems caused by packaging waste build up at the clinical sites.
