The storage conditions for blood and blood products are defined to ensure the safety of all blood products for transfusion. Red cells & whole blood must always be stored at a temperature between +2 degree C to +6 degree C in a blood bank refrigerator.
The quantity and type of product in the bank should also be noted for inclusion on the temperature graph. The frequency of the logging temperature will be less than five minutes. The results of this mapping will be returned in a bound folder, complete with a report on each fridge and the necessary temperature graphs.
