Tim J. Mitchell, Sentry's president, notes, "The highly customized -45C freezer enhances Sentry's ability to serve global biopharmaceutical clients' clinical sites through a single depot location centrally located in North America. Recently, a large, publicly held biotechnology company selected Sentry based upon our proven track record of success, our robust quality management system, pristine regulatory compliance record and expertise as the premier provider of clinical supply depot services.  Further, Sentry identified a strong need within its European client base for clinical trial depot and API management services at this crucial temperature setting."  Mitchell continues, "By further building Sentry's risk management approach to the specialized handling of temperature-sensitive biopharmaceutical products, we are better able to assist our clinical trial clients in devising and implementing custom secondary labeling, packaging configurations and depot service solutions at Sentry's headquarters. This investment strengthens Sentry's position as a leader in the biopharmaceutical industry and contributes to new market expansion."

"Sentry will complete validation of the -45C freezer next month," says Dwayne Marcum, Sentry's chief operations officer.  Marcum adds, "Upon completion, the 1,200 square foot chamber will complement Sentry's existing ambient (15C to 25C); refrigerated (2C to 8C); frozen (-15C to -25C) and ultra low (-70C to -90C) environments.  The -45C environmental room is unique in that it was specially designed and built to continuously operate with triple redundancy, using state-of-the art refrigeration, temperature monitoring and controlling systems to provide optimal product safety and efficacy."

Since incorporating in 2005, Sentry has always embraced an innovative approach to solving technical challenges by offering tailored, high-quality services among the most stringent international regulations.  Sentry's on-demand services continue to reliably offer pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies with superior service, immediate regulatory compliance, speed to market and a high probability for a successful project outcome.
