Safe & Secure Drug Returns,
Reconciliation, and Destruction

Drug destruction

Creating individual solutions to answer your unique challenges.

Even before a trial has started, sponsor companies can significantly improve their returns process.

Providing clear and concise instructions to investigator sites from day one like setting out the processes by which samples should be returned is vital to ensure a smooth returns process. Clear expectations should always be set for the parties providing returns management services to makes sure any returns are processed promptly.

Clinical trial sponsors must account for all doses of investigational drug products from the point of manufacture to the administration or the final certified disposition and destruction, but the return and destruction of unused investigational drugs at the end of a clinical trial is often overlooked.

Regardless of the size of your study, all doses of a drug must be accounted for at the close of your trial. This may involve accountability all the way down to the individual dose level and include detailed recordkeeping.

Early discussion and planning for returned drug accountability is important and a necessary element of clinical supplies management planning. Cryoport Systems can help with this service.

Let Cryoport Systems manage your clinical supplies through every step of your clinical trial.

Cryoport Systems will competently manage your clinical supplies through every step of your clinical trial even when changes occur. We can be counted on for clear and concise communication throughout your clinical study development process to ensure traceability of all therapeutic materials to help you create a robust returns and reconciliation process.

Cryoport Systems’ BioServices solutions encompasses the return, storage, and ultimate disposal or return of clinical trial materials at the end of your project. Returns can be reconciled to different levels before being securely stored until the approval for destruction is received. Reconciliation can be to shipper level, box level, or even right down to individual dose level.

Destruction is always carried out by an approved third party, and certificates of destruction are provided to help you carry out a full reconciliation of your clinical trial supplies.

Since investigator sites often have very limited space for storing study materials, sponsors should know returns may begin to come in before of the end of a study. Prompt and efficient processing of returned study materials is always best accomplished by dedicated returns management staff, otherwise known as people who have the training and skills required for this type of precise and exacting service.
