ACCURACY BACKED BY SCIENCE
No other thermometer has the body of scientific support behind it than the TemporalScanner. There are more than 55-published peer reviewed clinical studies supporting the Exergen TemporalScanner’s accuracy across all ages from preterm infants and babies to adults and geriatric patients.
- A study from American Journal of Nursing 1 affirms that temporal artery thermometers improve pediatric care in emergency departments by providing a painless, noninvasive, accurate, and consistent method of screening patients.
- The authors of a Dimensions of Critical Care Nursing 2 study note that the TemporalScanner not only avoids the added risks to the patient due to the invasive pulmonary artery catheter thermistor, but also reduces costs of determining temperature.
- A study from Advances in Neonatal Care 3 supports the TemporalScanner as a comfortable, non-invasive and accurate thermometer for neonates.
VALUABLE COST SAVINGS; GUARANTEED FOR LIFE
PATIENT COMFORT MATTERS: FAST AND NON-INVASIVE
We know patient care is top of mind when purchasing a thermometer for your workplace. Ease of use is just as necessary as accuracy in a medical setting, and that’s why the TemporalScanner’s patented, award-winning technology is totally non-invasive. Since the temporal artery thermometer gives a reading with just a swipe across the forehead, you don’t have to wake or disturb a sleeping patient to take their temperature. This is particularly helpful when you need to take the temperature of a sleeping baby, child or an elderly patient.

Exergen markets two models of the TemporalScanner: a professional version used in doctor’s offices, hospitals and other clinical settings, and a consumer model sold in major retailers nationwide. Between the two, more than one billion temperatures are taken with the Exergen TemporalScanner each year.
