For hospitals and at-home use

Exergen offers two professional models of Temporal Artery Thermometers for use in hospitals and other professional healthcare facilities and one model for at-home use:

  • The TAT-5000S is designed for large hospitals with high patient volumes. The TAT-5000s is already integrated in a number of well-known spot monitors, such as Philips SureSigns VS4, GE Healthcare VC*150, V100, Corometric Midmark IQvitals Zone, Capsule SmartLinx Vitals Plus, Spacelabs Qube, Xprezzon Qube Mini, Schiller Diagnostic Station DS20, and Mindray Accutorr 7 Series and VS-900 Series. The TAT5000s is very robust, extremely accurate, very easy and comes with a lifetime warranty.
  • The TAT-2000 is a professional lite thermometer based on the same infrared technology as its big brother. It allows doctors and nurses to quickly measure a patient’s body temperature. The TAT-2000 is very price-efficient and comes with a 7-years warranty. The TAT-2000 is also very easy to use and greatly improves productivity of doctors and nurses.
  • The TAT-2000C for home use is a totally non-invasive thermometer with advanced infrared technology providing maximum ease of home use with quick, consistently accurate measurements. Advanced, patented technology measures temperatures with a gentle stroke across the forehead.

Highly accurate and non-invasive

  • All Temporal Artery Thermometers measure the temperature of the blood in the forehead artery, so very close to the heart.
  • Highly accurate temperature measurement: 1000 measurements per second guarantees that the Temporal Artery Thermometer measures the highest temperature in the temporal artery.
  • Safe and very comfortable.
  • Non-invasive because all it takes to perform a very accurate reading is a gentle swipe with the thermometer across the forehead of a person.
  • Very fast: a very accurate measurement takes just 2-3 seconds.
  • Very affordable.
  • Highly robust and very easy to clean.
  • No protective caps required, therefore green. Caps are available if hospital protocols require the use of a cap to prevent cross-contamination in critical areas.
  • The technology on which the Temporal Artery Thermometer is based is supported by more than 100 peer-reviewed and published clinical studies.
  • Some professional models come with a Lifetime Warranty.
