Temperature controlled storage

If you work in either the pharmaceutical or veterinary drug industries, you’ll know all too well that temperature controlled storage is essential for maintaining the integrity of your products. You’ll know that pharmaceuticals and veterinary drugs cannot be stored in ordinary fridges or freezers but instead require specially designed cold storage solutions that offer both consistent and controlled temperature storage to maintain the composition of each specific product. In addition, it’s crucial these facilities offer high-level security to prevent any wrongdoing such as theft or tampering and contamination.

What is temperature controlled storage?

Essentially, temperature controlled storage refers to specialty storage that maintains a specific temperature at all times. This kind of storage is required for items that are at risk of damage or spoiling when exposed to certain climatic conditions such as extreme heat or moisture. Temperature controlled storage is also often well insulated, which offers added protection from dirt and dust, as well as dark to prevent damage from light. While pharmaceutical products and veterinary drugs will usually require cold storage solutions that maintain cold temperatures, many items also require consistently warm temperatures for their preservation. Storage between 15.0°C to 25.0°, for example, is often suited for the storage of specific items such as wine, artwork, antiques, documents or furniture. In the context of pharmaceuticals and veterinary drugs, most often cold chain storage will be the required option.

Why invest in premium quality cold chain storage management for your pharmaceutical and veterinary drug products?

Appropriate cold chain storage is a non-negotiable for manufacturers, suppliers and distributors of pharmaceuticals of any kind. Cold storage solutions ensure your products are kept at optimal temperatures regardless of external conditions such as the climate of the geographic region you’re based in, or other uncontrollable factors such as power outages. Furthermore, by using professional climate-controlled storage with experts who are well-versed in storing certain products, you can rest assured that your products will be stored correctly in every way – from the right temperatures to the right position within a storage facility.

Choosing the right facilities will avoid extreme consequences such as:

  • Inactive vaccines that are effectively useless, wasting both time and money and potentially causing significant harm
  • Inaccurate clinical trial results which can also have long-lasting repercussions
  • Ineffective medications which can lead to devastating consequences and harmful safety issues
