Learning Type



As a pharma professional working in the GMP environment, you understand the critical importance of maintaining sample integrity, optimizing workflow, and conserving energy. Join us for our webinar on the latest advancements in cold storage technology for the pharmaceutical industry and discover how to stay ahead of the curve.

Over the past decade, the demand for -60°C through -80°C assets in pharmaceutical manufacturing has skyrocketed. Clinical research investments have expanded, and commercial-scale needs continue transforming the industry. However, the lack of alternative solutions has made cold wall technology the gold standard.

But here’s the catch – cold-wall technologies were not designed or intended to perform in certain applications that are becoming increasingly common. Factors such as expedited commercialization of drug products, the need for bulk volumes, and the demand for flexible temperature setpoints have stressed traditional cold-wall systems.

Is there an alternative technology that can address these challenges? The answer is a resounding “yes.” Join us for this webinar to explore forced-air convection technology and discover how it can revolutionize your operations.
