As an industry-leading specialty care service provider in Canada, BioScript has decades of expertise in cold-chain and biologic pharmaceuticals, with proven ability to support special programs that require direct-to-pharmacy or direct-to-physician distribution. To meet the rigorous requirements of these time-sensitive specialty therapies, their GMP-compliant facility provides precise warehouse temperature monitoring, strict cold chain management and stringent shipping protocols. A fully licenced importer, distributor, packager and wholesaler, BioScript Logistics is an independent Canadian company that holds a Drug Establishment Licence (DEL) and has the capability to hold a Medical Device Establishment Licence (MDEL).
