Safe-T-Vue temperature indicators from Temptime provide nonreversible temperature indication for blood products, plasma, and RBCs. The indicators easily adhere directly to blood bags during refrigeration, transport, and temporary storage. They are ideally suited for use by blood banks, blood collection centers, and transfusion services to maintain quality control in transport and storage of blood products. Available in 6ºC and 10ºC indication temperatures, Safe-T-Vue changes color from white to red when the indication temperature has been reached or exceeded. Because it is nonreversible, Safe-T-Vue will indicate that a high temperature condition existed, even if the temperature has since returned to a lower level. Easy to follow videos for use and validation, and customizable validation documents are provided on the company’s website.
