Caligor Opco, LLC (“Caligor Coghlan” or “CalCog”), a global expert in clinical supply services, is further enhancing its controlled substance handling capabilities by adding cold chain storage and transport solutions for Schedule I through V products. The expansion comes as a response to the increasing demand for cold chain storage solutions.

“We are seeing an increase in controlled substances being utilized as IMP in clinical trials,” said Darian Cross, Global Head of Operations. “These trials present unique complexities that require a specialized approach to ensure Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) compliance.”
