PHSE is a global leader in the transportation of radiopharmaceuticals for therapeutic and diagnostic uses. Customers rely on PHSE to provide compliant services on a worldwide basis that ensure that shipments arrive on-time and within specification. PHSE understands that many radiopharmaceutical therapy’s play a vital life-saving role in cancer treatment. As these products have a very short shelf life, the timeliness of our ground and air services is crucial to ensure their efficacy and administration to the patient according to the hospital’s schedule.
By partnering with leading companies in the teragnostics industry, PHSE has specialised over the years in the urgent transport by land and sea of short-lived molecules (F-18), which requires very short delivery times. These are lightning transports that take place within a maximum time of 6 hours. For molecules with a long half-life (LU) PHSE guarantees patient administration within 24/48 hours globally.
Our dedicated radiopharmaceutical transport services include:
- Express delivery;
- Strict deliveries including public holidays;
- 24/7 pick-up with possible continuation by air NFO and delivery to destination;
- Dedicated customer service;
- Document management;
- ADR advisor;
- Vehicles geolocalised via GPS;
- ADR-licensed personnel.
The transport of radioactive materials is regulated by a set of technical and administrative regulations that guarantee, through the adoption of stringent safety standards, a high level of protection of workers, the population and the environment from the risks derived from ionising radiation.
PHSE is an “authorised carrier” subject to specific authorisation by the Italian Ministry of Enterprise and Made in Italy, in possession of the necessary licences to transport radioactive substances, not only on Italian territory, but also where a specific licence is required such as Switzerland, Spain, France.
Internationally, it has a highly capillary and flexible network for the distribution of radiopharmaceuticals. A dense worldwide network of qualified agents for air shipments, GDP warehouses and a diversified fleet of vehicles equipped with special fittings and ADR equipment. This model allows it to reach any destination in the shortest possible time and with maximum respect for the health and safety of operators.
