Timestrip® Blood Temp Blood Bag Irreversible Temperature Indicator is designed for use by blood banks and transfusion services during blood storage and transportation. When applied to a blood bag the Timestrip® Blood Monitor will immediately begin to sense the core temperature. Any breach of the core blood temperature above 6 ℃ or 10 ℃ and the Timestrip Blood Monitor will change color from white to blue indicating that an unsafe temperature condition existed.
Blood Temp offers simple quality assurance for blood temperature during transit from the highly controlled environment of the blood bank to use or store in a different destination, such as a hospital. With a squeeze of a button, Blood Temp 10 is activated and indicates simply and clearly if the temperature of the blood has risen above the threshold temperature. Accurate to +/- 0.5 degrees C.
If the indicator window remains white, the blood may safely be reissued upon return as detailed by the American Association of Blood Bank Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services and CFR 600.15(a).
Timestrip® Blood Temp leads to more predictable blood handling by eliminating the environment of guesswork, assumptions, and inaccurate predictions, giving you the confidence needed to make important decisions.
Protect against blood waste - With the push of a button the Timestrip® Blood Temp makes it possible to reissue blood which would otherwise be discarded.
