Biotechnology is currently the fastest growing market within the pharmaceutical industry and the number of temperature sensitive products is increasing. As a result, your industry requests seamless temperature control along the whole supply chain.


In addition, the Food and Drug Association (FDA) and equivalent organizations mandate conditions and quality procedures for all stages of drug manufacture and distribution. On top of this, debt crisis and healthcare reforms lead to cost containment activities all around the world.
