"Sentry has the facility, expertise and quality systems to offer these valuable services On-Demand, providing our clients with flexibility in finished product delivery while reducing freight costs and storage fees. The ultimate goal of On-Demand Services is to manage risk and eliminate unnecessary supply chain costs while maintaining or exceeding service levels."
According to the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, five of the top ten reasons for pharmaceutical recalls include miscellaneous cGMP deviations, impurities in or degradation of products, lack of product stability, labeling errors on declared strength, and incorrect products in cartons or packages. Although the exact cost of these issues is unknown, reports indicate that the pharmaceutical industry spends billions annually to rectify these issues. Because Sentry offers a cGMP, validated storage facility and inventory management system, Good Manufacturing Practices are ensured, expiration dates are managed and tracked, product integrity is maintained, and labeling or re- labeling can be accurately executed to prevent costly errors.
