ELPRO is once again collaborating with Biocom California to co-host a series of educational webinar sessions taking place this summer and early fall.

The webinar series is for all life science practitioners in Supply Chain, Logistics, Packaging Engineering, Cold Chain, Quality Control/Quality Assurance, Clinical Supply and Commercial Operations or Warehousing. The sessions will include case studies, strategies and tools to preserve the safety and efficacy of temperature-sensitive products in-transit and in-storage.


October 26 | 10:00am PDT | ​​​​​The Rise and Future of Pharma Cold Chain Resiliency

Sweeping changes have taken place in temperature-controlled supply chain logistics over the past several months. The pandemic highlighted new opportunities in existing Cold Chain networks and accelerated the birth of a better, more resilient global infrastructure. In particular, one that can sustain medicines and therapies that require ultra-low temperatures. What does that future network look like? Join this session with Cold Chain experts from UPS Healthcare, Stirling Ultracold and Marken as they explore:

  • The rise of temperature-sensitive medicines and therapies
  • Challenges in global distribution and storage
  • Access to transportation and export facilities
  • Remote Cold Chain infrastructure and capacity
  • Faster launch of critical medications with ULT/Cryo infrastructure
  • The role of information, data and technology in tomorrow’s healthcare supply chain
