Passive or Active? which cold chain technology works for pharma?

London, UK: A white paper from Tower Cold Chain compares key pharmaceutical cold chain technologies.

The free to download paper, Passive v Active in a globally disrupted age, includes comments from seven experts and collates the key findings of a 90-minute webinar organised by Tower in late 2021.

Among the topics covered are the rapid changes affecting the industry; the new challenges that are arising in delivering vaccines to remote areas; and the considerations that must be made in selecting the optimum container type for the task.

At the heart of the publication is an assessment of the relative merits of active, passive and hybrid temperature-controlled packaging solutions with detailed insight on their use across the global pharmaceutical supply chain.

The review of the technologies the white paper identifies a place for all types of temperature-controlled solutions within the market.

“In some circumstances, active methods are ideal. In others, passive is the only sensible choice to de-risk the shipment,” Kevin Doran, global head of supply chain, Tower Cold Chain, says.

“When it comes to patient care and the effective delivery of critical pharmaceuticals there’s no benefit in being partisan. We felt it was vital that decision makers can get a balanced view, which is why this white paper brings together a wide range of voices to survey the whole landscape and identify the scenarios for the best use of each technology.

“We’re grateful to all of the experts who gave their time and provide such a rich source of insight and information – and we look forward to sharing it with others.”
