“Storing and distributing our products through Cryoniss means one less headache in our heavily regulated industry – worth its weight in gold.”

A quarter of the world’s population is estimated to carry tuberculosis infection, of which 5–10% will develop disease over the course of their lives. The challenge facing human health professionals is how to target preventive therapy effectively and this is a pillar of the WHO’s #EndTB campaign.

PBD Biotech has developed a rapid blood test that can be used to screen at risk populations and identify those at risk of developing tuberculosis. It is working closely with partners across the world and needed a secure logistics solution to transport blood samples and components securely.

How have Cryoniss helped?

After listening to its requirements, Cryoniss worked alongside PBD’s production and quality team to deliver a bespoke solution, adapted to their requirements.

This has evolved into a fully managed service, with Cryoniss becoming a distribution hub for their diagnostic components, coordinating bespoke quality management and shipping solutions for both domestic and international routes.

Jane Theaker CEO of PBD Biotech comments:

“Our diagnostics are being developed under ISO13485 to meet the highest quality, safety, and efficacy requirements.  We expect the same quality standards from our suppliers.”

“When we looked for a supplier to provide safe storage and shipment of our diagnostic components and samples; Cryoniss were the natural choice.”

“They’ve proved that their quality control processes are rigorous and robust, and their record keeping and chain of custody documentation is reliable but also reassuringly user-friendly.

Their doors are always open should we (or any of our customers) require an on-site audit and the relationship between the companies really feels like a partnership – working together towards a common quality goal.”

“Their attention to detail is phenomenal and we know our products are in safe hands. Storing and distributing our products through Cryoniss means one less headache in our heavily regulated industry – worth its weight in gold.”
