Brooks Automation’s newly branded Azenta Life Sciences has been contracted by QTC Management to provide the storage and distribution of vaccines to the US Department of Defense.
In early 2021, QTC was awarded the Reserve Health Readiness Program III contract, under which they will provide commercial health services to all US military reserve forces.
What will Azenta do?
Azenta will work with QTC and the Defense Health Agency to ensure the safe, reliable supply of vaccines for service members. This includes the provision of temperature controlled secure storage for active vaccines, and timely shipment and delivery of vaccines to QTC clinics and temporary events located across all 50 U.S. States, territories, Washington DC, and locations in Germany.
“We are proud to be selected and to apply our expertise in cold storage solutions and services to support our nation’s service members,” said Linda De Jesus, Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Azenta Life Sciences. “Providing our services to protect vaccines with exacting cold chain requirements and ensure they are made available where and when needed is a natural extension of our sample management services business.”
