Provides Cold Chain Transport and Chain of Custody for Personalized Medicine, From Research and Development, to Delivery to Each Patient
NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) AUGUST 04, 2016
Quick has expanded its specialized domestic and international personalized medicine logistics capabilities to meet the changing needs of the life science and healthcare communities.
The adoption and practice of personalized medicine and biologics continues to extend its reach to all stages of patient care and fields of medicine and include autologous vaccines, which are created from a patient’s own cells and may control or cure various cancers.
These types of drugs can be less stable than others, making both speed and maintaining proper temperature critical throughout the entire transportation process.
Individual patient specimens must be quickly transported to laboratories or Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs), where the personalized vaccines are created, and then sent back from the manufacturing site to a medical clinic or hospital where the patient will be infused.
Quick’s healthcare logistics division provides precise cold chain and individual handling throughout the supply chain to ensure drug integrity and patient safety. It is critical that the right drug reaches the right patient at the right time.
Priority service capabilities include:
“Immunotherapy drugs are one of the most exciting discoveries in the life science industry. These personalized drugs offer the ability to harness and energize a patient’s immune system to fight cancer with little or no adverse side effects. Quick is proud to be partnering with many of the innovative healthcare and biotech companies who take aim every day to erase cancer in our life time, says Dave Murphy, Executive Vice President, Life Sciences.
