Pharmaexpress

Controlled temperature shipments.



Your shipments travel at a controlled temperature

SDA expands its array of Extranetwork special services with Pharmaexpress, a complete and highly reliable service dedicated to Pharmaceutical and Biomedical companies. Choose Pharmaexpress to ship medicines and diagnostic specimens at room temperature and at a controlled temperature (either positive +2°/+8°C or negative -20°C).

Safety and Control
Pharmaexpress insures the integrity of the shipments and the continuity of the cold chain by using SDA network validated isothermal containers, in compliance with IATA directives and approved for the UN3373 (diagnostic samples) and the UN1845 (dry ice) class of transport. The use of diverse refrigerating materials allows setting the internal temperature of the containers used during the transport in every phase of the distribution: for temperatures within +2° and +8°C a safe and patented gel coolant is used during the shipment, while dry ice is used for negative -20°C temperatures.
