Cold Chain Logistics
Preserving and Protecting Your Products
Maintaining cold chain product integrity demands rigorous processes and expertise. HemaCare provides secure and reliable cold chain solutions for human biological products. All aspects of the production workflow can impact the efficacy and reliability of the cellular material, including cold chain logistics. Because these temperature-sensitive biological materials need careful protection, HemaCare provides complete oversight of all cold chain logistics including full oversight of samples from collection to final destination.
Ensuring Product Integrity
When it comes to managing temperature-critical biological products, quality compliance and experience matter. HemaCare follows stringent guidelines and robust SOPs when processing and shipping fresh or cryopreserved biological material. HemaCare utilizes best-in-class clinical grade biopreservation media, CryoStor® and HypoThermosol®, to improve post-biopreservation viability and functionality of biological material. In addition to cryopreserved isolated cells, HemaCare offers cryopreserved leukopaks to mitigate the significant challenges that lie in the logistics and process development of cell therapies. Cellular material is delivered in shipping containers that contain temperature-monitoring devices to ensure consistent temperature while in transit. HemaCare offers packaging solutions designed for consistent temperature stability between 2°-8°C, 15°-25°C, and -196°C. Additionally, packaging and shipping can be customized to meet requested specifications.
With the emerging need of high-quality biological material and the growing pipeline of personalized medicine, an unbroken temperature cold chain is critical to a project’s success. HemaCare has built a strong partnership with best-in-class packaging manufacturers (NanoCool, Credo, Sherpa System, Evo, ThermoSafe, TruePak, among others) and commercial and specialty couriers (FedEx, UPS, CryoPort, QuikStat, Apollo, World Courier, among others) to ensure all regulatory compliance and product specifications are met when your order leaves our facility and arrives at yours. Our relationships with these partners ensure domestic and international shipments arrive during the specified timeframe. Additionally, HemaCare is happy to train our dedicated logistics team on ANY customer-specified packaging requirements and can work with ANY courier company not part of our extensive list of logistics options.
