When the east coast of England recently experienced its highest tides for decades, Source (News - Alert) BioScience's Sentinel disaster recovery lan for stability stored product saved the day for one of the UK's major pharmaceutical manufacturers.

With thousands of products in their in-house stability storage suite under threat from water damage caused by the high tidal surges and consequent devastating flooding, this major company staved off disaster with a simple phone call to Source BioScience. Source BioScience's controlled environment storage facility in Rochdale was primed and within minutes, space was allocated in the fully validated suite at the appropriate temperature and humidity to enable the stability trials to continue, while vehicles were made available to collect the hundreds of containers of product.

Just a short time after the high tidal surges, the potential critical loss and disruption of the stability storage operation was averted.

Source BioScience's storage facility in Rochdale, England has over 2 million cubic litres of environmentally controlled storage space available. More than 30 walk-in rooms are operating at temperatures that range from +60ºC down to -25ºC and humidities up to 95%RH. In addition, refrigerated, low and ultra-low temperature storage for biologicals is available along with cryogenic storage for cells and tissues.

The Source BioScience Sentinel disaster recovery plan is designed to protect clients from significant financial losses, as well as time consuming delays in bringing products to market and is available in the UK, Ireland and in the USA.
