Supply Chain Overview
Materials Management (receipt, storage, shipment)
We manage a range of materials from APIs and raw materials to finished products. We have the capability to handle toxic, potent, flammable, and hazardous materials. Our secure, cGMP warehouse utilizes ICH storage conditions including controlled room temperature (15-25°C), 2-8°C, -20°C, and -80°C. We also provide distribution of clinical trial materials, as well as temperature controlled shipping for temperature sensitive products.
Sampling and Dispensing
Singota can aliquot materials from bulk to specified weights or volumes into appropriate containers for testing, development, and manufacturing purposes. These operations are performed in our designated cleanrooms under ISO 8 conditions.
