PANEL: “Molecular Diagnostics Testing: Opportunities for SCM Efficiency!”
As scientists discover how to glean useful information from the human genome through sequencing and make that information clinically meaningful, this market will continue to grow rapidly from startup through to commercialization. These constituent would probably relish the opportunity to share the SCM tools and strategies used in this area. As you may know, the needs of a molecular diagnostic companies’ supply chains are just as critical to its success as it is to a larger pharma/biopharma commercial organization, but in many respects the strategies that are emerging are different from big pharma, or biopharma’ s needs (think a service delivery model supply chain vs. that of a drug manufacturer or distributor).
Now that you have selected a partner – defined the kit and done the data dance to share addresses for deliveries, How do we manage this relationship? How do we keep our customers – internal and external happy? How do we ensure the ‘bang-for-the-buck’?
Using a pull based inventory replenishment model for variable process environments where Push/MRP does not easily fit.
Demonstration of tools that can help diagnostic companies ensure that their clients sites have the right amount of sample kits ready for use at the right time.
PANEL: “Temperature-Controlled and Cold Chain Supply Chain: Proven Technologies and Practices for Compliance”
Deployment of the emerging temperature-controlled logistics and cold chain technology, manifesting from end-to-end of the supply chain, requires packaging engineering standards, business processes, information systems and monitoring mechanisms. The stakeholders will discuss the pitfalls and present a blueprint for the manufacturing, logistics and distribution of temperature-sensitive materials and finished products globally.
