Specialized Cold Chain Expertise to Speed Your Client’s Regulatory Approval

Bringing deep cold chain expertise to your project. Helping your client or portfolio business achieve rapid, successful drug approval


#1. We Work With
Regulatory Affairs Consultants

Modality Solutions are experts in providing your clients the data they need for a successful filing. We become the subject matter expert on your team—augmenting your vital work by providing highly specialized expertise in cold chain logistics, packaging qualification engineering, and drug product testing requirements. We’re especially experienced with biologics and other advanced therapies with complex drug stability considerations.

When your client’s drug product has complex cold chain requirements, Modality Solutions is the specialist to trust. We share the same goal: To bring your client’s filing to a fast, successful completion.

How Modality Solutions Can Help

From individual consultants to large firms, regulatory affairs professionals regularly tap into our proprietary transport simulation lab—the only independent lab equipped to test multiple, concurrent, worst-case scenario hazards. We’ve generated more FDA-reviewed data through our lab than most pharma and biotechs have in decades of filing experience. And we have a proven track record of providing transport validations that remediate FDA information requests and 483s.

We provide subject matter expertise and support for two key FDA CTD (Common Technical Document) Sections required for regulatory submissions:

  • Section 3.2.P.3.5 - Process Validation. We focus on distribution and cold chain requirements like packaging qualification (primary, secondary, and thermal) and drug transport simulation testing (including defining the distribution network and demonstrating drug product robustness).
  • Section 3.2.P.8.3 - Stability Data. We focus on distribution and cold chain requirements like evaluating the effects of temperature excursions on drug product stability.

How Modality Solutions Teams Up with Regulatory Affairs Consultants

When regulators pushed back on a biopharma’s cold chain validation approach, the Regulatory Affairs Consultant tapped Modality Solutions to negotiate an acceptable path forward.

“They had the experience to demonstrate that the proposed transport validation approach was better able to generate the data the FDA was looking for.”

A biopharma’s filing was being held up by an inexperienced regulator questioningwhy the company didn’t conduct analytical testing earlier in the process. The Regulatory Affairs Consultant turned to Modality Solutions for its cold chain validation testing expertise.

“They explained why analytical testing was done after transport simulationtesting, quickly resolving what could have become a protracted issue.”

Regulatory Affairs Consultant recognized that they didn’t have all the data to demonstrate the robustness of the client’s drug product formulation.

“We didn’t have the technology to fill that data gap. But Modality Solutions did, with their transport simulation lab.”

A biopharma received an FDA Information Request related to cold chain requirements, and their Regulatory Affairs Consultant was concerned about the potential for significant delays.

“Modality Solutions triaged the situation fast, clearly explaining the types of data we could commit to providing.”
