Recommended for COVID-19 screening

As states and communities begin to reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic, public health officials are recommending non-contact temperature sensing devices like ThermoFlash® as part of an initial screening at entrances to facilities, to identify and triage people who may have an elevated temperature or fever.

Since accuracy is essential, hospital-grade medical devices like ThermoFlash® that provide a consistently accurate and reliable temperature reading are preferred. Also, the use of non-contact devices, which do not need to touch the patient in order to read their temperature, is considered a best practice as it can help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 infections.

During the Ebola pandemic in west Africa, Dr. Francois Teboul called ThermoFlash® "the Ebola fighter's weapon of choice" because even in the hot, humid climate of sub-Saharan Africa, ThermoFlash® was found to be effective and reliable at detecting fever.
