Blood Temp 10 temperature indicator

The Blood Temp temperature indicators have been specifically designed to monitor the core temperature of a blood bag.

When the core temperature of the bag gets to either 6°C when in storage or 10°C when in transit, the breach window will turn from white to blue, letting you know the blood bag needs to be discarded.

FAQ's

What is Blood Temp?

Timestrip® Blood Temp a single use temperature indicator in a self-adhesive label format.

Do I need to pre-condition the Blood Temp before activation?

Blood Temp does not require pre-conditioning. Just activate Blood Temp at any temperature above 6°C for Blood Temp 6 or 10°C for Blood Temp 10 as you cannot squeeze the dye out of the blister if it is in solid form. You then simply need to adhere the Timestrip onto a pre-chilled blood bag, whose temperature will immediately solidify the dye and then track any temperature breaches.

Does Blood Temp have a shelf life?

The expiry date is provided for each lot of products supplied. You will find it on a label on each bag together with the lot# we use for traceability.

What does partial colouration of the indication window mean?

Any blue colouration of the indication window (partial or full) denotes a temperature breach.

Why does the activation window turn dark green but then a lighter green when in the back of the fridge?

That is normal, and as it should be. It goes a bit lighter green because the liquid inside has solidified and contracts slightly within the pore structure, making it appear a lighter shade.
