Guide pratique : chaîne du froid pour les médicaments.

Author(s) : AFF, SFSTP

Type of monograph: Guide/Handbook


Temperature-controlled transport and storage of pharmaceuticals is expanding greatly. The technological evolution of the pharmaceutical industry results in the emergence of new temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products on the market. This essentially concerns vaccines, anti-cancer and anti-diabetes drugs, blood and biotechnology derivatives. Besides, the distribution networks are becoming longer, more diversified and more complex, in particular because of the exiting of these products from hospital reserves and the globalisation of their production sites.
