Fully GDP-compliant pharmaceutical transport

Most medical and biological products must be strictly temperature controlled at every stage of manufacture and distribution. Failure to do so not only risks the loss of an extremely high-value cargo but can also jeopardize public health and patient safety. Because of the special needs of this sector, Thermo King established TK PharmaSolutions, a platform of applications and services that addresses the precise needs of the industry.

Within TK PharmaSolutions, Thermo King developed a Good Distribution Practice (GDP) protocol with supervision and validation by independent specialists serving the pharmaceutical industry. This follows EU guidelines to cover design, installation, operation and performance qualification.

The SLXi now joins our range of GDP-qualified equipment for the temperature controlled transport of sensitive pharmaceutical products. Our real-time tracking and remote monitoring system TracKing™ enables detection of temperature deviations and immediate action to secure the load. TracKing™ is now GAMP5 validated.

Thermo King’s PharmaAssist service contract helps the customer to better manage risk throughout the life of the equipment. Services include annual calibration, preventative maintenance, priority breakdown assistance and access to the iKare portal for full documentation.
