Ensuring Safe Transport of Modified T-Cells for Cancer Treatment
CAR-T cell therapy, a cancer treatment that uses modified T-cells from a patient to target cancer, requires careful handling and temperature control during transport to maintain cell viability. These cells must be transported at a specific temperature range to ensure they remain effective.
Cryogenic storage containers called 'dewars' are used for the transport of these cells. These dewars can maintain a temperature of minus 150 degrees Celsius or lower and can hold their temperatures for several days. The shipments are typically frozen with liquid nitrogen, which is essential for preserving the cells' integrity.
Specialized Cold Chain Service
The handling and transportation of CAR-T cells require specialized expertise and equipment. A specialized cold chain service provider such as Mercury is necessary for the safe and efficient transport of these cells. We have the expertise and equipment required to transport these cells while maintaining their potency.
Temperature Monitoring Devices and GPS Trackers
It's essential to choose a shipping service provider that can provide the necessary equipment, such as temperature monitoring devices and GPS trackers, to ensure the safe delivery of the T-cells for therapeutic use.
These devices help monitor the temperature and location of the cells during transport, ensuring they remain within the optimal temperature range. We also partner with cryogenic storage facilities.
With a specialized cold chain service provider like Mercury, you can be assured that your CAR-T cells are in safe hands. Contact us today to learn more about how we can assist you with your cell and gene therapy shipping needs.
