Offering our services to fight the pandemic

Panther Pharma Service, Panther Display’s specialised service for the pharmaceutical industry, assembles and packages the medical product CentoKit-19™ for CENTOGENE GmbH. CentoKit-19™ is a corona-virus self-test kit, that allows the throat swab to be taken independently and then collected from home for laboratory analysis.

Panther Pharma Service supports the sensitive logistics process with secure and structured data handling.

According to the test manufacturer's description, “The SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test from CENTOGENE is a real-time test based on reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in upper respiratory tract samples, and is used to diagnose and contain the further spread of the virus."

The orders are processed individually. Panther Display receives the individual orders directly through the Corona Test Portal and is responsible for packing the CentoKit-19™ and scanning the respective materials. The CentoKit-19™ are then sent by courier directly to the individual customers. Finally, the scanned information is then uploaded to the customer portal, so that CENTOGENE is informed who has received the corresponding CentoKit-19™.

“Thanks to the collaboration with Panther Pharma Service, ordering the CentoKit-19™ is quick and straightforward for our customers. To have an expert in pharmaceutical logistics at our side is a great advantage for us as a test provider, as well as for the customers.” Dr. Volkmar Weckesser, CIO & Executive Representative for Corona Testing at CENTOGENE
