Units of whole blood freshly collected in plastic bags or conventional bottles required up to 1/2 hr at refrigeration temperature before the core temperature fell below 10 C. Subsequent incubation at room temperature raised the core temperature of the blood units past an acceptable 10 C limit within 45 to 60 minutes.
