Global Clinical Supply Solutions For Every Trial

Source: Thermo Fisher Scientific


After a long night of packing for her family’s spring break vacation, Holli Carlson, Director, Commercial Solutions, Pharma Services, woke up at 4:40 AM Saturday morning. She noticed a text message on her phone. A six-day-old baby experiencing violent seizures needed a client’s medication immediately. Vacation was going to have to wait. By 5:20 AM, Holli was on the phone with the client to identify a solution. By 7:30 AM, she and her team were at the site (normally closed on Saturdays). The client had received an emergency Treatment IND from the FDA the night before. Next, through Thermo Fisher’s Total Transportation Management capability, they were able to arrange same-day shipment from their TSA-certified warehouse. No red tape. No delay. No package opening at the airport. The package went directly on a commercial flight, and was hand delivered to the hospital 12 hours after Holli received that text. Best of all, when every moment mattered most, a baby in urgent need could be treated with the client’s medication in hours instead of days.

At the center of every clinical trial is a patient waiting for a treatment to arrive safely and on-time.

In the highly competitive, new drug development market, biopharma companies face a myriad of challenges—from balancing cost, time, and quality, to delivering the best possible outcome for their trial and their patients. As biopharma companies move toward an Investigational New Drug (IND) application and their first human trial, many of them find themselves lacking the experience and knowledge in securing a reliable clinical supply chain strategy. A reliable clinical supply chain strategy is as essential as a company’s discovery program—making finding a partner who can help guide a comprehensive supply chain strategy and manage day-to-day supply chain activities, paramount.
