Blood, medicine and vaccines can be susceptible to temperature damage in the cold chain. With the huge growth in the number of temperature-controlled healthcare products being shipped, the Timestrip PLUS range of indicators offers invaluable visual aids to doctors, patients and healthcare workers. The ShockWatch single-use Blood Temp indicator is specifically designed to monitor the core temperature of a blood bag. When a more detailed record of the shipment’s temperature data is required, a temperature recorder like LOG-IC can be used, even when the product is being shipped in dry ice. Where previously it may have been necessary to rely on hand-written notes of dates and times, easy-to-read Timestrip Time indicators can prompt nurses or patients themselves when repeat doses or dressing or cannula changes are due. This is particularly useful in helping hospital staff to comply with infection control procedures.
