Accurate and fast

The TAT-5000, TAT-2000 and TAT-2000C are based on a very innovative infrared technology. They offer many advantages over more traditional methods of determining a patient’s body temperature:

  • highly accurate temperature measurement
  • fast, safe and comfortable for the patient
  • quick and easy to use for both doctors and nurses and at-home users
  • low costs, resulting in an average payback period for the TAT-5000 and TAT-2000 of less than 1 year
  • the TAT-5000 is very durable and can be used without throw-away sensor caps to avoid unnecessary waste and costs
  • due to its industrial design the TAT-5000 is covered by a Lifetime Guarantee
  • the housing of the thermometer is resistant to aggressive disinfectants
  • the technology on which these thermometers are based are supported by more than 80 peer-reviewed and published clinical studies
  • the TAT-2000C offers at-home users the same accuracy, speed and reliability as the TAT-5000 and  TAT-2000 for use in hospitals – at a very attractive retail price

Ideal for patients

“The TAT-5000, the TAT-2000 and the TAT-2000C are non-invasive thermometers, which is ideal for patients,” says Dr. Marybeth Pompei, Senior Vice President & Chief Clinical Scientist, Exergen Corporation. “They are comfortable and very accurate. In addition, the use of the TAT-5000 and the TAT-2000 is in line with hospitals’ efforts to make them more sustainable. Since the TAT-5000 and TAT-2000 do not require the use of disposable caps to protect the measuring sensor, no unnecessary waste is generated. The TAT-2000C is aimed at at-home users. It is also the at-home thermometer of choice of doctors and nurses in the US”.

“With our virtual classroom and other training material we will be able to support our customers with very effective service and support”, adds Dr. Marybeth Pompei.
