ClinStorage has expanded its storage capacity and strategic manpower to meet a significant increase in demand, particularly for its low and ultra-low temperature storage. CEO Ola Camber: “With our new team and storage facilities, our capabilities have never been stronger. Our extensive knowledge means guaranteed security for our customers—we’re all set to keep growing.”
ClinStorage has seen a 30% increase in new customers over the last 18 months, plus growing demand from existing customers. Consequently the company has recruited a new Logistics and Compliance Manager, and Business Development Manager. It has also expanded its existing storage facilities in Solna, Sweden, a stone’s throw from Karolinska University Hospital and Karolinska Institutet medical university, and moved into a new, larger office space at the same locale.
“A major part of the expansion is our ultra-low storage capacity at temperatures from -80 to -1960 C” says Ola Camber (Assoc. Prof in Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutics) “one of our clients for example is one of the largest pharmaceutical developer of plasma-derived products in Europe. Our freezer and ultra-low offerings are a major benefit for them. The new posts we’ve created in compliance and business development too really power us ahead as a company to capture the full business potential of the growth we’re seeing in the need for ultra-secure storage solutions.”
NEW SKILLS, READY TO GROW
New Logistics and Compliance Manager Anders Hagman, Ph.D in Analytical Chemistry started at ClinStorage in June 2019. Anders has more than 25 years’ pharma experience working with both small molecules and biotech products, with strong experience in Quality Control, Quality systems and GMP audits.
In January 2019 ClinStorage’s new Business Development Manager, Fredrik Sjövall, came aboard. A senior life science strategist with deep, broad expertise in both pharma and medtech, Fredrik has major CEO experience of building up start-ups and making them market-ready for IPO, crucially including formulation companies and companies handling and testing often fragile test substances.
ClinStorage Chief Operating Officer and co-founder Sven P. Jacobsson (PhD, Prof Em in Analytical Chemistry): “Our skills in analytical science, control of small molecules and biologics in a GMP regulated environment, and many more – mean we meet our clients as highly expert advisors as well as service providers. No matter what the substance, we can offer the best, and most secure solution for the client every time. It’s what we do – our knowledge and operations mean guaranteed security for our clients.”
