I see that some brands of ink ( Scream, Immortal, and some others ) advertise colors like 'Blue Concentrate' and 'Green Concentrate'. Are these inks ready to use or are they made for mixing?
My guess is that it is just a catch term for a deep intense color. Any info?

From info/ dvds i have seen, these are deep colours. True dark red for example rather than i mix red with black.

It is a pure pigment. The name is quite misleading.
I was looking for exactly the same answer, when i wanted to order some Eternal inks. I emailed Barber DTS, and they replied saying that is "pure", rather than mixed to create a darker/lighter colour.

I got Eternal green concentrate, and it is really dark.
