Val-A-Sure® Cooler Validation Kits

Time-saving and trouble-free

Our Val-A-Sure® Cooler Validation Kits were developed based on hands-on trials and feedback from blood banks and laboratories. The result delivers a simple, consistent and accurate solution for the speed of process blood banks and labs told us they need – all in one integrated kit.

Val-A-Sure Cooler Validation Kit

With the automated LogTag® temperature recorder, you simply:

  • Setup your validation procedure
  • Pack the cooler(s)
  • Press “START” on the recorder

You specify the overall recording time period – 4, 6, 10 or 12 hours – and the recorder will continue to record temperature data at the time intervals set by you.

Easy to learn validation procedures and training videos

Step-by-step video instructions for a variety of cooler validation procedures – included on DVD in each kit and available in the Support section of our website – make setup easy for laboratory and blood bank staff.

Accurate temperature records and ready-to-use protocols

The LogTag Analyzer software generates graphs, individual time and temperature readings and gives you the ability to print out validation data to support your records. Using the editable Validation Protocols provided on the DVD and our website, you can also create customized documents. Combined, the protocol and temperature reporting gives you the validation documentation that you need.

Multi-use temperature recording and validation kit

The Val-A-Sure Kit can also be used to validate coolers and containers that transport all kinds of temperature-sensitive biologicals – vaccines, tissue, human organs, serums, specimens, pharmaceuticals and laboratory samples. With multiple temperature recorders and internal sensors, or using the optional bag sealing probe, temperature readings can be taken at various locations throughout any transport container.

Bag sealing probe

Unlike other probes, the bag sealing probe is the optimum diameter for the blood bag spout.  Once inserted in the bag spout; it will not leak blood products during your validation.
