TAT-5000 Calibration Verification Kit
Be Confident in Your Readings.
Calibrate any Exergen TemporalScanner thermometer in any environment such as in the a hospital, on nursing floors, or in the field, conveniently, quickly, and accurately.
For use with the Exergen TAT-5000.
Why is it necessary?
Calibration verification is a commonly required part of routine quality assurance programs, and also is used if a question is raised about the accuracy of a particular thermometer. Actual recalibration of an Exergen thermometer is never required unless it has been physically damaged or experiences component failure, in which case the calibration verification test identifies the problem device, which then is returned to the factory for repair.
What is in the kit?
A special master reference TemporalScanner thermometer of the same model in use by the institution, a portable hand-held reference blackbody, an AC plug-in adapter for long-term use, a 9-volt battery for portable use, and a sealed virtually indestructible carrying case.
Who uses it?
The main users are biomedical/clinical engineering, blood donor and pheresis units (in the United States, blood donor and pheresis units are required by the American Association of Blood Banks to verify thermometers on a daily basis), and many nursing units where accurate temperature is critical such as hematology/oncology, and bone marrow and organ transplant units.
