Assure Temperature Compliance during Transport

Safe-T-Vue® 10 is a temperature-sensitive indicator that easily adheres directly to blood bags during transport. It is ideally suited for use by blood banks and transfusion services to maintain quality control in transport and storage of blood.

Safe-T-Vue 10 changes color from white to red when the 10°C indication temperature has been reached or exceeded. Because it is nonreversible, Safe-T-Vue 10 will indicate that a high temperature condition existed, even if the temperature returns to a lower level. As long as the indicator remains white, blood may be stored for future use.


Temperatures accurate to within +/- 0.4°C.
