PCI Pharma Expands Cold-Chain CapacityBy
PCI Pharma Services has expanded its on-site cold-chain storage at its site in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
An additional 500 pallet spaces have been added, increasing the on-site refrigerated storage (2-8 degrees Celsius) at its commercial packaging center of excellence to more than 1,300 pallets. The 450,000-square-foot site features contract packaging services for over-the-counter medicines, ethical pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and animal-health therapies.
The company’s investment in cold-chain infrastructure and parenteral packaging at its Philadelphia site continues a series of investments. PCI’s European-based Hay-on-Wye facility recently installed a multipurpose custom-engineered parenteral labeling unit capable of supporting a variety of injectable delivery forms such as vials, syringes, and autoinjectors. PCI’s Rockford, Illinois site recently installed cryogenic storage in support of the growing cell and gene therapy market, another market segment requiring temperature -controlled activities that often range from -140 degrees Celsius to -196 degrees Celsius.
