This ear thermometer is a device capable of achieving infrared temperature measurement when placed in the auditory canal. Temperature in the ear reflects accurately the temperature of the inner body, and is a very safe way of measuring human body temperature.
The thermometer is very accurate and easy to operate, with full detailed instructions, and a measurement takes no more than one second. Any further measurements can be taken at 12 second intervals to ensure accuracy.
The major benefit of this thermometer is the probe, which does not require separate probe covers. Other thermometers available require probe covers, and will therefore cost more in the long run, as additional covers need to be purchased. The probe can be simply wiped clean using an alcohol swab or a sterilising wipe.

Cleaning and Storage
The thermometer should be kept in the protective case, in a dry location free from dust and contamination, and away from direct sunlight. The ambient temperature of the storage location should remain fairly constant and within the range of -10oC to 55oC.
Use an alcohol swab or sterilising wipe to clean the thermometer casing and the measuring probe. Ensure that no liquid enters the interior of the thermometer.
Never use abrasive cleaning agents or thinners for cleaning, and never immerse the thermometer in water or other cleaning liquids. Take care not to scratch the surface of the probe lens.
Before measuring ensure that the thermometer has been stabilised at the ambient temperature for at least 30 minutes. If the thermometer has been stored as detailed in the cleaning and storage section then measurements can be taken immediately.
Ensure that your ear canal is clear, otherwise the measurement may be inaccurate.
A measurement can only be taken when the ear symbol is in the display, which is approximately 12 seconds between measurements.
The thermometer should not be used if your ear canal has been inflamed.
Before using for the first time, please ensure that the tab is removed from the battery compartment.
