The Science Behind Logistics – How Cold Chain Planning Impacts the Clinical Development and Commercialization of Regenerative Therapies


Mark Sawicki, Ph.D.


Wednesday, October 12, 2016


11:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

Registration site:



In this webinar, Dr. Mark Sawicki, Chief Commercial Officer of Cryoport, will discuss results from sponsored research on the impact of packaging choices and temperature ranges on the viability of cells, biomarkers and critical reagents for pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD), immunogenicity and clinical studies. An overview of the research will be provided describing the impact on assay performance resulting from shipping under dry ice and dry vapor liquid nitrogen (LN2) cryogenic shipping conditions, especially at longer holding times associated with global supply chains. In addition, Dr. Sawicki will discuss the results of a separate study of cell viability and resultant GP19 production, a target of genetic alterations found in cancers. Real-world risk mitigation strategies will be presented for packaging, logistics, systems integration, condition monitoring and technology — elements that can impact clinical trial results, product integrity and efficacy as well as biomarker viability in the just-in-time logistics environment for clinical studies and the commercialization of regenerative medicines.

"Cryoport has a vested interest in providing the most accurate scientific data to support logistics strategies underpinning clinical research data generation to our clients. To that end, we have scheduled a webinar available to the scientific community to discuss the outcomes of research conducted in conjunction with our partners, Heat Biologics and Kansas City Analytical Services, looking at the impact of packaging and temperature on the viability of clinical materials. We believe this research provides valuable insight to the pharmaceutical industry that will impact logistics decisions and improve clinical data generation," said Dr. Mark Sawicki, Chief Commercial Officer of Cryoport.
