Cold Chain Monitoring of Blood Preservation

Hospitals and clinics worldwide are aware that a constant temperature recording during transport and storage of blood, blood plasma and donor organs is essential.

Every year large quantities of unused blood conserves have to be disposed. Until now there did not exist a technical system that is able to monitor and transfer the temperature of blood conserves promptly and proactively.

CHECK-IT allows a definite detection of the exceeding or undercut of a certain temperature threshold and allows to save temperature data as function of time into a database.

The check is carried out upon delivery with a hand-held device. The hand-held device indicates whether or not the threshold temperature of the blood conserves has been exceeded or undercut during transport.
