Infographic Transport William Labs

Assuring temperature compliance during blood product transport and storage has been a topic of concern and debate for quite some time.

We know that the coolers validated and blood is properly packed when it’s issued, but are you confident that the blood was kept in the cooler, or left out where it could warm above the temperature limit?  Do you worry about what could have happened while the blood was NOT in your control?

This infographic illustrates this process and the challenges it presents, and shows how temperature indicators can be used to assure that out-of-compliance blood products do not get re-inventoried.
