Almac Clinical Services marked the start of 2010 with the official launch of a new state-of-the-art web-based, Shipping Temperature Electronic Monitoring System - stems. Unique to the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, this latest addition to the Almac services portfolio is set to revolutionise the management of temperature controlled shipments within the clinical trial industry.
(PRWEB) February 17, 2010 -- Novel technology saves time and reduces costs in clinical studies.
Temperature excursions can inhibit the clinical supply chain, resulting in crucial investigational products being delayed or quarantined and not made available for immediate use at the study site. Excursions can occur at any point in a global supply chain and often arise as a result of multiple uncontrollable factors.
Upon download, Almac's Shipping Temperature Electronic Monitoring System - stems, equips clinical supply professionals with immediate visibility over all crucial shipment temperature reports. This enables users to make instant decisions 24/7 on their clinical supplies without the need for monitor returns or faxing of results.
Stems reduces any quarantine time for clinical supplies at study sites, saving both time and money for a global clinical study.
stems is the latest addition to the Almac services portfolio for temperature controlled clinical supplies. Alongside the Group's Specialist Temperature Controlled Team, and customised shipping unit systems, this new technology delivers the following key features:
