Packaging Technology Group, Inc (PTG), a provider of thermal packaging solutions for the biopharmaceutical and life sciences sector, announced the launch of a dual temperature pharmaceutical shipper made with sustainable materials. The new shipper is an addition to the TRUEtemp Naturals® Cellulose line of 100 percent curbside recyclable and repulpable products currently used by several pharmaceutical companies.
This innovative, pre-qualified sustainable option from PTG is a thermal solution that allows medications and therapies with different temperature requirements to travel together in the same container. In most cases, one of the medications would travel frozen and the other, refrigerated. The dual temp shipper is especially useful for complex immunotherapies shown to be effective in combating certain cancers and other diseases.
As biopharmaceutical manufacturers continue to develop new medications, the need to thermally protect the valuable medications and preserve the efficacy of the drugs while in transit increases. This option to ship medications with two different temperature profiles together provides a new way to best serve the intended patients and to save on shipping costs and assembly training.
“Sustainability is a top priority for most pharmaceutical companies, and we are proud to offer this unique, curbside recyclable solution,” said Tom Lawlor, chief operating officer of Packaging Technology Group. “PTG is committed to developing packaging designed to improve and simplify shipping solutions for critical temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals while meeting corporate sustainability goals.”
Developing an innovative dual-temp solution using sustainable materials that allow medical components of differing thermal profiles to travel together supports PTG’s S4 value proposition. This initiative focuses on providing clients with exemplary Service while providing Solutions that are Small, Simple, and Sustainable.
