Managing the cold chain of medicines requires to well protecte them and to put in place solutions to ensure that the temperature is maintained during storage and transport. Either high-performance devices, particularly for monitoring temperatures but also for protecting products (packaging, containers, etc.). A brief overview of some investments and technological innovations. [Article in French]
The challenge of the cold chain is becoming more and more important for pharmaceutical companies. On the one hand, because the number of heat-sensitive products is increasing rapidly (notably through the multiplication of vaccines): +50% over the last 9 years.
