    5532 - Tempa•DOT™ – Axillary Single-Use Clinical Thermometer – Disposable, Individually Wrapped Sterile 100/BX


    The Tempa•DOT™ Sterile, Single-Use Thermometer is our most popular product. It is specifically designed for high accuracy and for the prevention of cross-contamination that can expose patients to infections such as C. difficile, MRSA, Norovirus, Coronavirus and Rotavirus. These infections are easily spread through casual person-to-person and object-to-person contact. Tempa•DOT™ thermometers circumvent this risk by providing a clean, sterile instrument that is used with a single patient and then discarded.

    Product Accuracy:

    Tempa•DOT™’s accuracy is the same as, or better than, other thermometers commonly used in a healthcare setting. Each of the dots has its own formulated temperature point that fires at a specific temperature. When a dot fires, its color changes from brown to blue. The number of dots that fire is dependent upon the patient’s temperature. The last blue dot provides the accurate temperature reading.

    It is important to remember that axillary temperature readings are routinely lower than corresponding oral temperature readings. This difference is normal and expected.
