Transporting and Storing Blood

Transporting and Storing Blood

Transporting and storing of blood can be a very complex process. The blood cold chain is the system for transporting and storing blood to ensure it is kept at the correct temperature at all times.

The cost of destroying a bag of blood due to not knowing what the core temperature is doesn’t only have financial implications, it also affects critical blood stocks due to wastage. For a minimal cost of £1 you could save the life of your blood bag with the ShockWatch Blood Temp indicator. The Blood Temp indicator provides a simple solution which improves blood safety practice, decreases blood waste and provides auditable proof that blood has been stored, transported and reissued in accordance with applicable regulatory standards.
