Marken has expanded its services in Latin America with its new, purpose-built Buenos Aires facility. The move is part of Marken's plan to build "the most advanced, fit-for-purpose clinical distribution network to serve the pharmaceutical community," according to a company statement.
"The expansion of our services in Latin America enables our clients to better recruit in treatment naive populations and work with previously unreachable investigator sites, assuring quality and regulatory documentation through the entire supply chain." said Wes Wheeler, Marken's chief executive officer. "Our goal is to be the premier provider of life sciences supply chain services."
The new Argentina depot builds on Marken's current Latin America business, which serves more than 1,200 clinical research investigator sites in the region. Marken is developing additional depot facilities in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
The Argentina depot joins Marken's already operational Mexico and Singapore depots offering the full range of temperature-controlled storage capabilities, including controlled ambient, refrigerated (2° to 8° C), frozen (-20° C), as well as a secured area for controlled substances. Each of Marken's depots provides drug and equipment distribution solutions, including Pick & Pack, relabeling services, reverse logistics, reconciliation and certified destruction. Additionally the network manages specimen kit distribution, interim specimen storage and management.
