Blood Temp 10 Technology
Ensure compliance to regulatory procedures
Unsure if bags of blood were left out for too long at unsafe temperatures when moving Red Blood Cells from storage to the operating table? Don’t just rely on the time rule alone. Instead, choose Blood Temp 10.

Our small indicator visually alerts that a temperature breach occurred and the blood can not be used or returned to storage. Blood Temp 10 is a unique FDA 510(k) medical device that does not require preconditioning and is CE approved.

Blood Temp 10 is inert prior to activation. They can be shipped and stored at ambient temperatures and have no special storage requirements. Activate at room temperature. Activation is possible only when the surrounding temperature is above the stated threshold temperature.

Blood Temp 10 has two windows: an activation window that is yellow prior to activation and a breach window that is white prior to activation.

Clear Communication
Once activated, a green activation line appears in the yellow activation window and continues to fill the window turns completely green. The breach window will remain white. Blood Temp 10 can be directly applied by removing the adhesive liner on the back.

Once activated, Blood Temp 10 will continuously monitor temperature. When the core temperature of the blood bag breaches 10°C for Blood Temp 10 an immediate indication of temperature abuse is recorded:
Indication of arming window will remain green, while the breach window will turn blue.
The breach window is irreversible and cannot be reset / changed.

Blood Temp 10  FAQs

Yes. Orientation has no impact on the way it works.

The expiry date is provided for each batch of products supplied. You will find it on a label on each box together with the batch coding we use for traceability.

No, unlike some other blood bag temperature indicators, Blood Temp can be stored at ambient temperatures and activated only when needed.

Absolutely not! Unlike some other threshold temperature products, Blood Temp 10 do not require pre-conditioning.nJust activate Blood Temp 10 at any temperature above 10°C/50°F as you cannot squeeze the dye out of the blister if it is in solid form. You then simply need to adhere the Timestrip onto a pre-chilled blood bag, whose temperature will immediately solidify the dye and track any 10 degree temperature breaches.

A blue dye housed in a blister is held adjacent to a micro-porous membrane. Upon squeezing the activation button the dye comes out of the blister and into contact with the membrane. The temperature of the chilled blood bag solidifies the liquid, and thus unable to move through the membrane. If the temperature rises to or above the threshold temperature of 10ºC/50ºF, the dye changes to liquid form, moves through the membrane and indicates a breach when blue dye shows up in the indication window.

Yes. Please contact us for the MSDS for further information. We only use food-grade oils and non-toxic colourants in our formulation. In the unlikely event that the liquid leaks from the indicator and comes into contact with skin, simply wash with soap and water. If the liquid comes into contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.

Any blue colouration of the indication window (partial or full) denotes a temperature breach of 10ºC.

If stored under the correct conditions, this is highly unlikely to happen, but if it does, the built-in activation window lets you know it. If this happens, don't use the indicator and select another. There is no need to contact us, as we ship 1 or 2 extra indicators per pack free of charge anyway.

Timestrip® Blood Temp 10 a single use temperature indicator in a self-adhesive label format. It provides proof of meeting AABB Standards and the FDA CFR 600.15(a) for monitoring temperature of whole blood during transportation and storage. FDA 510(k) #BK150289

The Blood Temp 10 adhesive is intended for labels to be used on blood bags. Request the MSDS for more details.

You really need to try them (for free, of course) to really appreciate how easy they are to use. Timestrip Blood Temp 10 have the same or better accuracy than other indicators on the market, are FDA cleared, but where they are different from other indicators: Blood Temp 10 are simpler and faster to store, to use, and even cost a bit less, saving you time, money and effort.

That is normal, and as it should be. It goes a bit lighter green because the liquid inside has solidified and contracts slightly within the pore structure, making it appear a lighter shade.

Because we like our customers! You can use these free products for testing, training, validation, or just to save money. In the unlikely case any got damaged along the way or someone just wanted to try one, there is no need to get in touch, although we're always happy to hear from our customers. Personally, we think that all companies should give stuff away for free!

The activation window gives an immediate confirmation that the indicator is armed as it turns from yellow to green. If this doesn't happen immediately, then fully re-squeeze the button between thumb and finger. The breach/indication window (white with a red border) is separate so that you can clearly see if there has been a breach of the 10ºC/50ºF temperature threshold. If no breach has occurred the window will remain white. It will turn blue if there is a breach.

Blood Temp 10 indicators allow you to monitor the temperature of blood in a blood bag when it leaves the blood bank to go to a ward, operating room or other location.nBlood Temp 10 indicators require no power, a and can be read easily and instantly by the end user. Indication is irreversible and each indicator has a unique serial number to ensure traceability.
