PAREXEL Launches Active Tracking Service for Monitoring and Managing Temperature-Controlled Investigational Medicinal Products
PAREXEL International Corporation has announced the launch of its Active Tracking service. The service follows Good Distribution Practice (GDP) requirements by providing biopharmaceutical companies with near real-time temperature and location monitoring of investigational medicinal products (IMPs) from central distribution centers to clinical trial sites.
An increasing number of medicinal products require a temperature-controlled supply chain to maintain product integrity during transport, including approximately 75 percent of biological drugs, 10 to 15 percent of small molecule therapies, 100 percent of vaccines, and a large percent of biologic samples and diagnostic tools.1Temperature deviations and shipment delays can impact patient safety, create patient retention issues, and cause additional manufacturing and shipment costs.
