Frequently Asked Questions

Blood Temp

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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.

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

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 10°C/50°F temperature threshold. If no breach has occurred the window will remain white. It will turn blue if there is a breach.

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

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.
