Collaborative Learning that FUELS your Temperature Controlled Pharmaceuticals

Thank you to participants for joining us at the 3rd annual Leading Minds Seminar November 7th and 8th 2017 at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal in Princeton, NJ. The discussions were productive and useful. 


Program highlights included:

  • IATA led discussion on Experiences with in the air cargo supply chain
  • MHRA led discussion on Alternatives to shipping validation studies
  • Clinical site quality control and temperature monitoring challenges
  • Passive temperature control packaging - methods for evaluating the performance
  • Master Data Management – combining disparate data sets
  • Case study: Experiences transitioning to a new global cold chain database 


Stability Budget

Stability Budget continues to be a hot topic for discussion and debate for supply chain owners. Emanuel Schäpper of ELPRO presented a presentation outlining why use a stability budget and how to get started.

  • Start out by analyzing the stability data you have available for your product(s)
  • Calculate deviations that could have been avoided
  • Create a business case with the first two sets of information
  • Find the least resistant way to implement (see the presentation here that outlines the options for implementing a stability budget)




Leading Minds Seminars are complimentary (no fee attendance) for pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Join us at the next Leading Minds Seminar June 6th & 7th 2018 in Philadelphia, co-hosted with Sonoco ThermoSafe
