Millstone Medical Outsourcing will provide freezer storage and cold chain distribution services for customers' biologic products from its Memphis, Tennessee facility. The operation is already n FDA-registered and state licensed human tissue bank, authorized to store and distribute human tissue and bone products. In 2012, Millstone will offer cold chain product management services to answer a growing need for customers to be able to document validated cold chain integrity and compliance for their biologic product shipments.
To meet customer demand, Millstone Medical purchased ThermoFischer freezers capable of maintaining temperatures as low as -80 Celsius. The freezers are currently undergoing validation procedures and are expected to be operational by the end of 2011. The top-of-the-line freezers will be located in Memphis as an extension of the existing ambient tissue service. (Source: Millstone Medical Outsourcing)
