Will Your “Pre-Qualified” Cold Chain Packaging Pass Performance Testing?

Specialty Pharmaceutical Distributors are being tasked with proving their cold chain packaging will stand up to real time temperature protection.

The accepted method of pre-qualification of parcels used to deliver prescriptions to patients or providers is static testing in thermal chambers. These tests expose the package to various, sometimes extreme external temperatures with the goal a surviving a minimum of 24 hours within label claim temperature ranges.

This testing is also subjective. The products are typically simulated using bottles of water. Probes are placed at the technician’s discretion.

URAC and other accreditation services are asking for “shipping lane testing” as further qualification of cold chain parcels. If you want to be ahead of the compliance curve, EFP can help you confirm the performance of your current cold chain packaging. Contact PharmaTuff to learn more.
