Key considerations of cell and gene therapy cold chain logistics: redefining the supply chain

Cell and gene therapies are at the forefront of innovation and bring much hope for the future of medicine, they could transform how we treat and potentially cure certain diseases, so the stakes are really high. But they come with new considerations for therapy owners as they are brought to the market. The nature of these treatments and their use of living cells or genetic material create new intricacies and dependencies that disrupt the traditional commercialization process. For the first time, the patient is now part of the supply chain.

“When it comes to cell and gene therapies we are talking about an interconnected and personalized model which requires a higher degree of integration between specialized logistics partners, patient programs, and the health outcomes evidence which is required to drive physician adoption.”, Keegan Moore, Regional Sales Director
