Safe-T-Vue Blood Temperature Indicators
Nonreversible Temperature Sensitive Indicators
Zebra Safe-T-Vue blood temperature indicators, manufactured by Temptime®, are purposefully designed to help blood banks, blood collection centres and transfusion services improve compliance and preserve valuable blood supplies.
When attached directly to blood bags during refrigeration, transport and temporary storage, Safe-T-Vue® temperature-sensitive indicators provide a visual indication when blood products, plasma and RBCs have reached or exceeded 6°C or 10°C. Because they are nonreversible, Safe-T-Vue products will indicate that a higher temperature condition existed even if the temperature eventually returns to a lower level.

Ensure Temperature Compliance for Blood Products
Medical professionals can be assured of compliance to temperature requirements because STV responds at the critical temperatures defined by AABB Standards and 21 CFR 640, and does not revert once a colour-change has identified an exposure has occurred.
Facilitate Blood Administration
Zebra indicators promote accountability during transport, giving you visibility to confidently identify blood products that at no time exceeded temperature thresholds, enabling them to be reissued and minimise waste.
Better Manage Blood Inventory
Reduce the disposal of blood products due to the lack of temperature status. SafeTVue gives you visibility, so you can confidently identify blood products that at no time exceeded temperature thresholds, enabling them to be reissued.
Temperatures Have Remained at or Below 6°C
Safe-T-Vue 6 temperature indicators attach directly to blood bags while they are refrigerated or in temporary storage. They change colour from white to red when the blood (or other temperature-sensitive product) has reached or exceeded 6°C.
Temperatures Have Remained at or Below 10°C
Changing colour from white to red when the 10°C indication temperature has been reached or exceeded, Safe-T-Vue 10 temperature indicators attach directly to blood bags to help maintain quality control during temporary storage and transport.
