Extremely Sensitive Biological Asset Transfer No Problem For MarkenSource: Marken
Roslin Cells, a world leader in the isolation of new clinical grade pluripotent stem cells for use in research and development, was moving their site from within the Roslin Biocentre in Edinburgh to a new facility housed within the new Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine. Because of the extremely sensitive nature of the human embryos and stem cell lines being transferred, Marken was called to provide a controlled logistical transfer of the biological assets.
The first step in the process was meeting face-to-face with key members of the Roslin team to determine the temperature control requirements of the transfer and the volume of materials to be transferred. With this information in hand, the Marken team developed the logistics plan for the transfer, including packaging needs and coolant requirements. This information was conveyed to Roslin along with a detailed validation plan to demonstrate the quality assurance plans that Marken had in place, ensuring that the transfer would occur with no glitches.
