Just-In-Time Packaging And Shipping Supports Multiple, Complex Clinical Trials

South Bay Therapeutics, a Southern California pharmaceutical business, was conducting as many as five studies simultaneously for the same drug, which led to supply challenges. South Bay Therapeutics’ drug product is a viscous injectable delivered in vials or pre-filled syringes. Because the inventory needs for each site changed frequently, packages had to be reworked often to meet new clinical demands, a time-consuming  and costly process.

In addition, some sites handled multiple studies with differing protocols. Each package had to be labeled clearly, to avoid errors, and delivered quickly to the appropriate site.

South Bay Therapeutics selected Sherpa Clinical Packaging to manage its labeling, packaging, storage and distribution activities. Sherpa’s commitment to quality, responsiveness and ability to flex to ever-changing clinical requirements made them the obvious choice.
