Temperature-sensitive product guardianship involves an exacting approach to handling and transporting precious biopharma materials and products. Instead of meeting minimum safety and security requirements for temperature-sensitive materials, Sentry provides a highly specialized level of security and assurance throughout every stage of storage and handling. Guardianship results in the successful handling, transport and storage of temperature-sensitive products and materials.
Sentry's processes extend beyond pharmaceutical cold chain management to create a value chain, affecting everything from raw materials storage to resolving import/export issues. Sentry seamlessly couples internal and external expertise to develop and deliver unprecedented value in storage, packaging, material management, distribution and process management of temperature-sensitive materials and legend drugs.
You should turn to Sentry when temperature sensitivity is a vital factor in your biopharma products or components. Sentry is ideal for any pharmaceutical or biotech interest that manages highly sensitive materials, components and products for purposes of clinical trials, product development, manufacturing or commercial distribution. Unplanned temperature excursions at any point in the legend lifecycle can cause devastating setbacks-losing valuable time, wasting resources and costing dollars. If you need certainty that your investment in materials or research won't be affected by temperature deviation, you need Sentry.
If you need contract warehousing and/or custom packaging services for consumer goods or low-cost commodities where temperature sensitivity is a low-priority issue, you may not need Sentry. Sentry exclusively serves the healthcare industry. Many other companies store, transport and package various items without the level of expertise, precision and security that Sentry provides.
