Patrick Jackson, Vindon’s business development director, has been in the US overseeing the project and promoting the new facilities to some of the State’s major Pharma and Biopharma companies. After a first hand view of the installation he commented, “The progress that has been made at Santa Fe Springs over the past couple of weeks has been tremendous. The site engineers and contractors have pulled out all the stops and we are on schedule for having the suite ready for the grand opening on 31 July.”

Planning for the opening is well underway, with Marilyn Monroe look-alike Jodi Fleischer scheduled to perform the opening ceremony and cut the ribbon. The iconic ‘Marilyn’ will pose for photos with guests, so it really will be an occasion to remember.

Vindon’s partners will also be on hand at the opening ceremony. Transport and logistics specialists will be able to answer questions about the GPS-tracked sample transport service, and Vindon’s pharmaceutical testing and analysis laboratory partners will also share their expertise with guests.

The facility offers controlled temperature and humidity storage, as well as stability storage at all ICH conditions – including controlled substance storage and storage at custom conditions. Biopharma clients can take advantage of the freezer storage facilities on offer, with temperatures ranging from -20ºC to -80ºC.

Back-up systems include a generator with automatic transfer to maintain power to the entire facility in the case of an electrical outage. Audio and visual alarms for temperature and humidity and constantly recording CCTV also add to the integrity of samples stored with Vindon in California.

This storage suite is the latest in a series of investments by Vindon, geared towards providing outsourced storage services and partnerships at strategic locations in the USA, UK and Ireland. With more than 70,000 cubic ft of controlled environment storage at a wide range of humidities and temperatures that range from 70ºC to -196ºC Cryogenic storage, Vindon are well on the way to providing the Pharmaceutical and Biopharma communities with the most comprehensive storage service available.
