TrakCel & McKesson partner to help commercialize gene & cell therapy
  • The combination of these two product suites is designed specifically for the growing number of developers that are nearing the commercial launch of gene and cell therapies.
  • The integrated platform allows the product scale-up towards market delivery including automatic product-specific workflow scheduling across multiple care team members and supply chain partners.

McKesson, a leading provider of patient access support, third-party logistic (3PL) services as well as specialty pharmacy solutions, and TrakCel, software developing firm for gene and cell therapy orchestration and supply chain tracking systems, reportedly announced a collaboration to help late-stage developers of gene and cell therapy.

The collaboration will combine both companies’ patient access services and supply chain tracking to allow a more effective path for the industry players to develop next-gen commercial therapies.

Integrating TrakCel’s personalized drug orchestration software and data tracking system with the capabilities of McKesson’s current high-touch platform for patients, as well as both the companies’ support and expertise, will give an end-to-end solution for the gene and cell therapy industry to manage the entirety of the therapeutic supply chain.

McKesson and TrakCel would start by developing a basic solution design. Both these integrated solutions will further be offered to individual company clients which would then benefit specifically from this combined solution.

The combination of these two product suites is particularly designed for the growing number of developers that are approaching commercial launch of their gene and cell therapies. The integrated platform allows the product scale-up towards market delivery.

This also involves automated scheduling of product-centric workflows across numerous care team members and supply chain partners, and a validated tracking of chain-of-identity to ensure delivery of the right drug product. These capabilities guarantee that the patient gets the right, uncompromised treatment at the correct time.

Layne Martin, VP/GM of Specialty Distribution Solutions at McKesson Life Sciences stated that the integrated system would help manufacturers and prescribers work together in a seamless manner to ensure that right patient always gets the right therapeutic product and at the correct time.
