Exergen Medical Expands Sales into India

Innovative Non-Invasive Infrared Thermometers Now Available to Indian Patients

Exergen Corporation, a global leader in infrared temperature measurement technologies for medical applications, announced today that it has appointed Anil Dass as Director of Sales in India. Anil Dass will be in charge of the sales operations of Exergen’s Medical Division in India. Exergen Medical will sell both the TAT-5000 and the TAT-2000 infrared thermometers for use in Indian hospitals and the TAT-2000C for use by Indian consumers. 

The TAT-5000 is an infrared temporal artery thermometer for use by doctors and professional caretakers in hospitals and other healthcare institutions. The TAT-5000 easily stands up to the heavy-duty demands of a high-performance hospital workplace, including intensive care units and emergency departments, and all inpatient units. Based on the same infrared technology the TAT-2000 is a light-duty professional model intended for school nurses, nursing homes, and other occasional-use clinical settings. The TAT-2000C is the retail version of the TAT-2000 and is aimed at at-home applications.

High-Quality Products and Services

“Healthcare is very important to the Indian people”, says Anil Dass, Director of Sales for Exergen Medical in India. “So there are huge investments in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Also, we see that consumers in India are becoming very conscious of the fact that when their loved ones – children, spouses, parents – are ill measuring the body temperature is extremely important. The old rectal thermometers are much too invasive, but the temporal artery thermometers designed and manufactured by Exergen Corporation provide a very good solution. They are non-invasive, extremely fast and very accurate. There is a huge opportunity for the TAT-5000, TAT-2000 and TAT-2000C in India. So I am very happy that I am now able to help both doctors, nurses, and consumers to measure the core body temperature of patients in a very accurate and speedy way using Exergen’s Temporal Artery Thermometers.”
