Temperature Monitoring During Shipment and Storage

Part of the Biotechnology: Pharmaceutical Aspects book series (PHARMASP, volume XII)


AstraZeneca has rolled out a global Temperature Monitoring Program. The presentation will focus on the reasons for having taken that approach, the various challenges we met ,and also some learning points and recent changes in our program.

AstraZeneca believes that it is a good ethic to keep control of the products during transportation between the AstraZeneca sites; it also gives us information on the transport routes and allows us to continually improve our transports. Even though cool chain transports are challenging, we found room temperature transports even more challenging mostly due to complexity between markets and product submissions. It’s key to be pragmatic, keep it simple, have clear roles and responsibilities and have the same information at hand.
