1. The Advantages of this Thermometer
Measurement in a matter of seconds
The innovative infrared technology allows measurement
without even touching the object. This guarantees safe and
sanitary measurements within seconds.
Multiple Uses (Wide Range Measurement)
This thermometer offers a wide measurement range
feature from 0 °C to 100.0 °C (32.0 °F to 212.0 °F),
meaning the unit can be used to measure body tempera-
ture or it can be used to measure surface temperature of
the following:
 Milk surface temperature in a baby's bottle
 Surface temperature of a baby's bath
 Ambient temperature
Accurate and reliable
The unique probe assembly construction, incorporating an
advanced infrared sensor, ensures that each measurement
is accurate and reliable.
Gentle and Easy to Use
 The ergonomic design enables simple and easy use of
the thermometer.
 This thermometer can even be used on a sleeping child,
thereby causing no disruption.
 This thermometer is quick, therefore child-friendly.
Auto-Display Memory
The last reading is automatically displayed for 2 seconds
when the unit is switched ON.
Multiple Reading Recall
Users will be able to recall the last 30 readings when
entering the recall mode, enabling efficient tracking of
temperature variations.
Safe and Hygienic
 No direct skin contact.
 No risk of broken glass or mercury ingestion.
 Completely safe for use on children.
 Cleaning of the probe can be done with an alcohol-
moistened cotton tissue, making this thermometer
completely hygienic for use by the whole family.
Fever Alarm
10 short beeps and a red LCD backlight alert the patient
that he/she may have a temperature equal to or higher than
37.5 °C.
2. Important Safety Instructions
 This instrument may only be used for the purposes
described in this booklet. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for damage caused by incorrect application.
 Never immerse this instrument in water or other
liquids. For cleaning please follow the instructions
in the «Cleaning and Disinfecting» section.
Page: 17
 Do not use the instrument if you think it is damaged or
notice anything unusual.
 Never open the instrument.
 A basic physiological effect called vasoconstriction can
occur in the early stages of fever, resulting in a cool skin
effect. The recorded temperature using this thermom-
eter can, therefore, be unusually low.
 If the measurement result is not consistent with the
patient's finding or unusually low, repeat the measure-
ment every 15 minutes or double check the result by
another core body temperature measurement.
 This instrument comprises sensitive components and
must be treated with caution. Observe the storage and
operating conditions described in the «Technical Speci-
fications» section!
 Ensure that children do not use the instrument unsuper-
vised; some parts are small enough to be swallowed.
 Protect it from:
 extreme temperatures
 impact and dropping
 contamination and dust
 direct sunlight
 heat and cold
 If the instrument is not going to be used for a prolonged
period the batteries should be removed.
 WARNING: Use of this instrument is not intended
as a substitute for consultation with your physi-
cian. This instrument is NOT waterproof, so never
immerse in liquids.
3. How this Thermometer measures Temperature
This thermometer measures infrared energy radiated from
the forehead as well as objects. This energy is collected
through the lens and converted to a temperature value.
Temperature readings obtained by scanning above the
eyebrow area will provide the greatest accuracy.
4. Control Displays and Symbols
 All segments displayed 8: Press the ON/OFF button
5 to turn on the unit; all segments will be shown for
2 seconds.
 Memory 9: The last reading will automatically be
shown on the display for 2 seconds.
 Ready for measurement AT: When the unit is ready for
measurement, the «°C» or «°F» icon will keep flashing
while the mode icon (body or object) will be displayed.
 Measurement complete AK: The reading will be shown
on the display4 with the «°C» or «°F»icon and the mode
icon steady. The unit is ready for the next measurement as
soon as the «°C» or «°F» icon is flashing again.
 Low battery indication AN: When the unit is turned on,
the battery icon will keep flashing to remind the user to
replace the battery.
5. Changing between Body and Object Mode
For changing from body to object mode, slide the mode
switch 6 at the side of the thermometer downwards. For
switching back to body mode, slide the switch up again.
6. Directions for Use
Measuring in Body Mode
1. Press the ON/OFF button 5. The display 4 is acti-
vated to show all segments for 2 seconds.
2. The last measurement reading will automatically be
shown on the display for 2 seconds with the «M» icon 9.
3. When the «°C» or «°F» icon is flashing, a beep sound is
heard and the thermometer is ready for measurement AT.
4. Aim the thermometer at the center of the forehead
with a distance of no more than 5 cm. If the forehead
is covered with hair, sweat or dirt, please remove the
obstacle beforehand to improve the reading accuracy.

5. Press the START button 3 and steadily move the
thermometer from the middle of the forehead to the
temple area (about 1 cm above the eyebrow). The acti-
vated blue tracking light will indicate the measurement
area. After 3 seconds a longbeep will verify the completion
of measurement. If the temple area hasn’t been reached
before the long beep is heard, repeat the measurement as
described above, but move the thermometer a little faster.
6. Read the recorded temperature from the LCD display.
Measuring in Object Mode
1. Follow steps 1-3 above, then aim the thermometer at the
center of the object you want to measure with a distance
of no more than 5 cm. Press the START button 3. After
3 seconds a long beep will verify the completion of
2. Read the recorded temperature from the LCD display.
 Patients and thermometer should stay in steady-
state room condition for at least 30 minutes.
 Don't take a measurement while or immediately after
nursing a baby.
 Don't use the thermometer in high humidity environments.
 Patients should not drink, eat, or exercise before/while
taking the measurement.
 Don't move the measurement device from the
measuring area before hearing the termination beep.
 Use an alcohol swab to carefully clean the probe and
wait for 15 minutes before taking a measurement on
another patient.
 10 short beeps and a red LCD backlight alert the patient
that he/she may have a temperature equal to or higher
than 37.5 °C.
 Always take the temperature in the same location, since
temperature readings may vary according to locations.
 Doctors recommend rectal measurement for newborn
infants within the first 6 months, as all other measuring
methods might lead to ambiguous results. If using a non
contact thermometer on those infants, we recommend to
always verify the readings with a rectal measurement.
 In the following situations it is recommended that three
temperatures are taken and the highest one taken as the
1. Children under three years of age with a compro-
mised immune system and for whom the presence or
absence of fever is critical.
2. When the user islearning howto use the thermometer
for the first time until he/she has familiarized himself/
herself with the instrument and obtains consistent
3. If the measurement is surprisingly low.
 Readings from different measuring sites should not
be compared as the normal body temperature varies
by measuring site and time of day, being highest in the
evening and lowest about one hour before waking up.
Normal body temperature ranges:
- Axillar: 34.7 - 37.7 °C / 94.5 - 99.1 °F
- Oral: 35.5 - 37.5 °C / 95.9 - 99.5 °F
- Rectal: 36.6 - 38.0 °C / 97.9 - 100.4 °F
- Microlife NC 100: 35.4 °C - 37.4 °C / 95.7 - 99.3 °F

This thermometer can display temperature measurements in
either Fahrenheit or Celsius. To switch the display between
°C and °F, simply turn OFF the unit, press and hold the
START button 3 for 5 seconds; after 5 seconds, the current
measurement scale («°C» or «°F» icon) will be flashing on
the display AO. Change the measurement scale between °C
and °F by pressing the START button 3. When the measure-
ment scale has been chosen, wait for 5 seconds and the unit
will automatically enter the «ready for measuring» mode.

8. How to recall 30 readings in Memory Mode
This thermometer can recall the last 30 readings.
 Recall mode AP: Press the START button 3 to enter
Recall mode when power is off. The memory icon «M»
will flash.
 Reading 1 - the last reading AQ: Press and release the
START button 3 to recall the last reading. Display 1
