Blood Temp 10 is a single-use temperature indicator for monitoring the temperature of blood bags during storage and transit. It features a self-adhesive backing for easy application and provides precise temperature readings.

Dual-Window Indicator System

This packaging indicator’s stand-out feature is the simplicity of its operation. The indicator is automatically triggered when exposed to temperatures exceeding a predetermined threshold. This automatic activation enhances its practicality and efficiency in fast-paced medical environments.

Once activated, the Blood Temp 10 can be effortlessly applied to a pre-chilled blood bag. The indicator’s design incorporates a specialised dye that responds immediately upon contact with the cold surface of the blood bag.  This dye solidifies rapidly, marking the beginning of the temperature monitoring process.

The solidification of the dye is a clear and instantaneous visual signal that the Blood Temp 10 is actively monitoring the blood bag for any potential temperature breaches. This is particularly important in ensuring the safety and viability of blood during storage and transport for healthcare settings where precise temperature control is vital.

Instantaneous Reaction to Temperature

The indicator has two distinct critical windows: activation and breach windows. The activation window, initially yellow, visually communicates the status of the indicator. Upon activation, this window changes to green, signalling the indicator actively monitors the temperature.

The breach window, on the other hand, is initially white and serves as a transparent visual alert system for temperature deviations. In the event of a temperature breach, where the temperature exceeds the safe threshold, this window changes to a blue colour.

Once the breach window changes to blue, this alteration is irreversible. It cannot be reset or tampered with, which is vital for maintaining the integrity and reliability of the temperature monitoring process. This ensures that temperature deviations are permanently recorded, providing an unambiguous and trustworthy record for handlers and healthcare professionals.
