									Study to Support Shipping and Distributing Pharmaceutical Products
Learn the stability studies which need to be done to support shipping and distribution of drugs.


Why Should You Attend:

Drug Product must maintain its identity, strength, quality and purity throughout its expiration.
Physical, chemical and biological data are influenced by various environmental factors such as
temperature, humidity and light. In current manufacturing environment, products can be shipped and
distributed across different climatic zones. Seasonal changes as well as types of transportation can
greatly affect the supply chain of the products.

This webinar will outline stability studies to support shipping and distribution of drug products. Upon
completion of this session, attendees will learn key factors that would affect the shipping and
distribution of drug products. you will understand the product stability profile, typical environmental
conditions for storage and anticipating environmental extremes for distribution. These data will be
necessary to design shipping condition in order to maintain quality of the drug product through expiry.
