Tenet Healthcare is a healthcare services company is using Blood Temp 10 temperature indicators to monitor blood transportation. PDC Healthcare surveyed the company on their experience with the indicators. The survey reported the blood bag temperature indicators helped them significantly improve blood transportation quality control and workflow efficiency.
The Blood Temp 10 indicators helped Tenet Healthcare comply with regulatory guidance by having auditable proof blood core temperature was maintained when being returned to the blood bank.
Riverside Health System is a healthcare non profit that is using Blood Temp 10 temperature indicators for blood temperature compliance. PDC Healthcare surveyed the organization on the efficacy of the indicators. Their survey reported the blood bag temperature indicators helped them significantly improve blood transportation quality control and workflow efficiency.

Time and Temperature Indicator maker Timestrip launches the Timestrip® Temperature app, a new tool that provides a visual audit trail of its temperature products.
Using the App simply involves taking a photo of a Timestrip® label with a smartphone.
If the Timestrip® has a new style serial number, the App will recognise the serial number and allow you to register it on the system.
You can then take a follow on scan where you can enter its activation state (inert, activated or breached), storing this data with essential time and location information in the cloud.
If the Timestrip® has an old style serial number you can still use the app in the same way but you’ll need to manually enter the serial number. The App is free to download from the Google Play store with an iOS version to follow shortly.
High tech low cost
The App is the latest innovation from Timestrip, which revolutionised the field of cold chain management with its unique Irreversible Time and Temperature Indicator labels (TTIs).
Recognised by the World Health Organisation and the US FDA as an essential tool for the cold chain management of blood and food products, TTIs provide data as to whether a blood or food product is safe to use. Timestrip’s irreversible TTIs make this crucial safety information unambiguous and instantly visible.
Like having a hundred permanent digital data loggers
The main benefit of Timestrip’s irreversible TTI labels is that they give essential cold chain management information on individual units of processed products. This deals with the main shortcoming of digital data loggers, which are mostly used for containers of transported and stored products.
Thanks to the new Timestrip® App, extra key information around cold chain management is added with the safe storage of status, time, journey and location data, which can be accessed at any time via the app or via a website. A digital data logger can be lost or damaged and all its data can be wiped clean. The Timestrip® App however safely stores this data in the Cloud.
Data logger functionality at a fraction of the price
Timestrip UK CEO Reuben Isbitsky says: “I am very excited about our first App, which brings Timestrip TTI labels very close to data logger functionality, at a fraction of the price. While a key benefit of Timestrip products is that they do not need external infrastructure to read and interpret, using the optional Timestrip Temperature App to scan them, adds enhanced functionality, easy audit trail and provides the customer with a permanent record of the history of the product’s journey.”

Timestrip UK Ltd have expanded their range to include their latest Timestrip PLUS™ 10° threshold indicator with a 7-day run-out/recording window. This specific indicator is meeting the demand within the pharmaceutical industry and the regulations and compliance that come with transportation and storage. With Timestrip’s latest 10° 7 day offering, they are reaching out further within the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare industry and ensuring their high tech but low cost devices are evolving with the relevant advances in the industries.
Timestrip design and manufacture innovative, irreversible time and temperature indicators for a range of industries from Food to Pharmaceutical. Their Timestrip® PLUS range is predominantly used across the Healthcare, Life sciences and Pharmaceutical arena. Currently, the Timestrip PLUS™ range covers temperature thresholds from -20°C up to 38°C and generally display a run-out window of any temperature breach for 8, 12 or 48 hours.
Combining time & temperature monitoring patented technology, which involves controlled rate lateral diffusion of liquids through the device membrane once activated. If a breach occurs, the ‘smart’ indicators will visually indicate how long a product has been exposed to higher temperatures.
