The clinical trial industry is now operating against a backdrop which brings both fresh opportunities and demands. New emerging markets are open for business—often in isolated locations—giving rise to greater calls for investigational products and clinical specimens.
In today’s environment, support operations—like logistics and packaging—can no longer play second fiddle to the practices involved in treating or curing disease. Ensuring clinical samples reach destinations safely, securely, and at the right temperature, is now as crucial as any element of the drug discovery process.
This has been a catalyst for increased regulatory pressure. The global clinical trial industry has reacted, demanding innovation in the cold supply chain and its packaging. At Softbox, we’ve spent the best part of two decades doing just that.
Our range of globally-available, cold chain parcel shippers, Tempcell and AEON, have made us a go-to vendor for the industry. They are both pre-qualified against a range of temperature profiles and capable of withstanding the challenges encountered when shipping time- and temperature-sensitive Investigational Medicinal Products on express distribution networks.
It is our continued investment in product design and innovation which allows us to offer such high-performance systems. They incorporate the newest, most advanced technologies and materials, making them infinitely more robust than anything we’ve seen before. Designed and rigorously tested to meet different regulatory standards, they offer total temperature stability. And allow delivery to sponsors and investigators, door-to-door.
These new materials have also laid the foundation for packaging that is palpably smaller. Reducing the footprint—as well as the tare and volumetric weight—maximises the use of payload space and can offer you more attractive shipping costs.
Whatever your specific need, we’ll be able to assist you with packaging qualification and give you a solution that allows you to do more with less. Should you have something out-of-the-ordinary in mind, we also have the capability to create customised solutions that can fit within specific distribution models.
No matter where you are in the world, we provide an integrated customer service to our clients. To ensure complete compatibility and product comprehension, this can include input from our quality, technical, commercial or customer delivery units.
