Seafood Indicator

The TimeStrip® Seafood Indicator is a simple solution that helps determine if your seafood shipments have been exposed to unacceptable temperature during transit.

A convenient indicator with push-button simplicity, these indicators are small labels which can be applied directly onto seafood packaging or crates. They can be stored at room temperature and then armed without pre-conditioning.

As Clostridium Botulinum (C.Botulinum) is known to form toxins much faster above 3°C /37°F, it is important to the seafood industry to know if shipments have been exposed and for how long.

How It Works

  1. Inert: liquid in blister before arming.
  2. Armed: blister squeezed, the word “ON” will be visible and blue color change in the  arming window confirms product is armed.
  3. Breach: liquid moves into the breach window (blue color appears) when indicator environment exceeds 3°C.
