Blood Temp is a single-use temperature indicator for monitoring blood bags’ temperature during storage and transit. Equipped with a self-adhesive, it ensures accurate temperature monitoring.
If the temperature breaches the critical threshold, the indicator provides a clear visual alert to handlers.
Single-Use Temperature Indicator
One of the key advantages of the temperature label is its ease of use. There is no need for any pre-conditioning before activation. The label becomes active only when the ambient temperature surpasses the specified threshold. Once activated, it can be applied directly to a pre-chilled blood bag.
The dye within the label instantly solidifies upon contact with the cold surface, allowing for immediate tracking of temperature breaches. The temperature indicator for blood consists of two distinct windows: an activation window and a breached window.
Before activation, the activation window appears yellow, while the breach window remains white. Any degree of blue colouration in the indication window, whether partial or full, signifies a temperature breach.
Accurate Temperature Monitoring
Upon activation, a green activation line becomes visible within the yellow activation window, gradually filling it until it is completely green. The breach window, however, remains white throughout the process. The breach window cannot be reversed, modified, or reset once it has turned blue.
