Non-contact Infrared Thermometer

Thermometer is one of the instrument that is worth having at home. Many types of thermometer – digital as well as mercury reading thermometers are available in market. However measuring a person’s body temperature without coming in contact with the person is not possible with regular thermometer. This is where non-contact infrared thermometers are gaining much popularity in this pandemic.

Using non-contact infrared thermometers (NCITs) reduces cross contamination and minimizes the risk of spreading Covid-19. The typical body temperature should be at 98.6°F (37.0°C) and is considered a “normal” temperature. Some research studies say that  “normal” body temperature can be a wide range- from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C).. Improper use of NCITs may lead to inaccurate measurements of temperature.

NCITs are easy to use, very clean and are mostly disinfected, measures temperature readily and rapidly, if needed it is easy to retake the temperature with NCITs.

The person who uses the device should strictly follow the manufacturers instruction to use NCIT.
