According to data provided by the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine, there are nearly 900 companies responsible for more than 1000 industry-sponsored clinical trials within regenerative medicine utilizing advanced therapeutics including cell, gene, and tissue engineered products. Maintaining oversight on these precious therapies, literally vein-to-vein, encompassing a multitude of stakeholders, lengthy timelines, across countries and continents is a monumental undertaking!
Recently, TrakCel and Quick Life Science Group announced they are partnering on a solution. The companys’ platform integrates supply chain tracking and information technology (IT) systems orchestration with transportation logistics.
TrakCel, the leading developer of systems software within the cell and gene therapy industry, contributes the company’s supply chain IT solutions. Quick, premier global priority transportation provider, provides logistics expertise.
Within a single interface, the platform enables multiple supply chain partners to automatically schedule activities, maintain product-specific workflows, and deliver validated chain-of-identity tracking for cell and gene therapy products transported between clinic and manufacturing sites in North America and Europe.
The integrated platform has already proven critical to adopters like Mustang Bio, according to Knut Niss, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, Mustang Bio, quoted in the press release. “For autologous supply chains to function seamlessly, logistics vendors need to work together with the aim of creating a single intuitive interface that automates the supply chain – this is exactly what TrakCel and Quick have achieved. Without such integration, supply chain stakeholders are burdened by manually creating and managing orders in disparate systems, increasing the likelihood of error. The fact that this important integration is already in place allows Mustang to rapidly deploy a powerful customized solution.”
