Inbound and Outbound Sampling Services

Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Sampling

Inbound and Outbound Sampling

There are some characteristics of the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare industries that make a difference on how sampling inspections are performed. Especially for the pharmaceutical industry they are often highly regulated with high demands on quality standards and level of documentation. As a logistics company with many years of experience, Rhenus is your reliable partner for inbound and outbound sampling. Both are equally important but are totally different in their nature.

Inbound Sampling

The core part of the inbound sampling process is the removal and further processing or shipment of a sample during the inbound process.

Our current inbound sample activities cover the following:

  • Powder or granulate from Big Bags from external suppliers
  • Fluids from Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) from external suppliers
  • Folding boxes coming from production
  • Shipper Cartons coming from production
  • Marketing material from printing companies

Especially for the inbound sampling process, high requirements in regards to quality management and hygiene apply. Therefore in most cases a dedicated inbound sampling area is established or the usage of a Laminar Flow cabinet.

Outbound Sampling

Sophisticated requirements resulting in increased complexity, a high demand for quality within the process and the need for special training of the processing staff differentiates the samples outbound process from “regular” outbound. The outbound sampling process is typically characterized by picking smaller handling units and the usage of a larger variety of packing materials, all designed to provide a convenient and positive experience for the recipient.

Our current outbound sample activities cover the following:

  • Homecare products to end customers and nursing homes
  • Marketing material to end customers and field service
  • Promotional activities to end customers

Rhenus Pharma & Healthcare sites with the ISO 13485 certificate are also capable to send out medicinal products with Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API).
