The ear canal is the best site to measure a fever because of its close proximity to the eardrum, which shares the blood supply of the brain's temperature control center. This site allows for a more accurate reflection of the body's core temperature. Exclusive pre-warmed tip technology is designed to minimize the cooling effect of the tip inside the ear canal, providing accurate measurements time after time. Unique positioning system uses a light and beep to confirm proper positioning. Flexible tip for added gentleness. Memory function recalls the last 8 temperature readings.

Meets the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) accuracy requirement specified in ASTM standard E1965-98, as it pertains to infrared thermometers. CE listed.
