Fisher BioServices Intensifies Commitment for Cell Therapy Companies in Clinical Trials and Approaching Commercialization

Rockville, Maryland (PRWEB) September 05, 2013

Fisher BioServices Inc., a leading provider of biorepository/biobanking and ultra cold chain logistics services, announced that Dan O’Donnell, Associate Director of Cell Therapy Logistics, will speak at three upcoming industry conferences. Mr. O’Donnell, who is widely known for his expertise on ultra cold chain distribution and regulatory compliance in transporting biologics and cryogenically frozen cell-based therapeutics, has been invited to present at the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT) North America Regional Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (September 8–11), the Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine USA Congress in Cambridge, Massachusetts (September 30–October 1), and the ColdChainIQ 11th Annual GDP & Temperature Management Logistics Global Forum in Chicago, Illinois (September 30–October 4).

Mr. O’Donnell will share his expertise on the challenges of moving high value biologics at ultra cold temperatures from the manufacturer to the patient bedside—in clinical trials as well as in the commercial marketplace. This will include an overview of how product packaging and clinical trial design can complicate logistics, add expense, and limit the number of clinical sites available for conducting phase II and phase III clinical trials. He will use a case study format to illustrate the technical challenges of meeting FDA requirements while moving products around the world at cryogenic temperatures, and share his experience with both autologous and allogeneic cell-based therapies.

Industry professionals who’d like to learn more about the latest end-to-end cell therapy solutions from Fisher BioServices can register for Mr. O’Donnell’s webinar - “Ultra Cold Chain & Logistical Challenges in Cell Therapy Clinical and Commercial Development” on October 10th, 2013. As Fisher BioServices’ Associate Director of Cell Therapy Logistics, Mr. O’Donnell has worked with numerous clients and assisted them in designing and implementing their ultra cold chain strategies which include packaging, qualified shipping systems, and patient delivery mechanisms that are cost-effective and align with patient safety needs and FDA requirements. He brings extensive experience and insight to the process of commercialization and distribution of biological therapeutics. Mr. O’Donnell’s webinar will include his insights and address some of the topics in his recent eBook, Commercially Successful Cell Therapies: Navigating the Ultra Cold Chain Distribution Minefield. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions. Mr. O’Donnell’s eBook is available at To learn more or register for the webinar, go to
