Timestrip® Blood Temp 10

Pressing the button activates the Blood Temp and simply and clearly indicates whether the core blood temperature has exceeded its temperature threshold.

The TimestripPlus blood bag indicator has been developed for use in blood banks and transfusion centers during the storage and transport of blood to show whether blood products can still be taken back if they have not been used.
Easy to read:
The TimestripPlus blood bag indicator changes from white to blue when the core blood bag temperature has exceeded 10°C.
This irreversible go/no-go indicator makes it easy to identify and assess temperature exceedances.

In addition to the BT10, there is also a BT6, this for storage control and thus the 6°C temperature limit.
