What if one of the indicators in the box is showing the indication window already blue before I’ve squeezed it?

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.

Have you got any tips to prep many Blood Temp 6 Indicators at the same time?

We find that placing on a very cold coolpack works really well. The colder the better, ideally having been in a freezer.
Squeeze the Blood Temp Indicators and then place on the coolpack , leaving the adhesive liner on the Blood Temp Indicator.
The activated product can stay on the coolpack for a very long time. We recommended to have this prep area close to the blood-bag fridge and near to the time of use.
Then, when the blood bag or blood bags have been prepared for the Blood Temp indicator, simply remove its adhesive liner and adhere to the blood-bag.

Extra tip: Blood bags can warm up surprisingly quickly when placed on an counter in a room temperature environment. To keep them cool longer, while preparing them, lay them on a coolpack as well.
