Air Liquide offers solutions that can help you protect sensitive products from exposure to oxygen, optimize the composition of the drug and maintain a cold chain for your clinical and biological samples. In collaboration with you, we design the gas installation and ensure that you get the gas supply that best suits your requirements and needs.
Logistics for the cold chain
Temperature variations can affect the stability of a medicine and thus its healing effect. Temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical and diagnostic products must be kept stable during distribution and arrive at their final destination without damage.
Air Liquide offers solutions that include cold chain logistics with dry ice or liquid nitrogen. Even very sensitive deliveries of e.g. clinical samples, vaccines, diagnostic and biological equipment can be stored and transported without damage.
Some medicines are sensitive to oxygen and moisture in the air. Therefore, they often have to be protected with an inert gas in order for them to maintain their healing effect. Some therapeutic proteins are packaged in a nitrogen atmosphere during fill-finish operations to extend shelf life.
As the gas comes into direct contact with the final pharmaceutical product, it is important that the gas supply is reliable and complies with current regulations.
