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 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.

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 10°C/50°F, the dye changes to liquid form, moves through the membrane and indicates a breach when blue dye shows up in the indication window.

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.

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.
