1. The Advantages of this Thermometer
Measures in a matter of seconds
The innovative infrared technology allows the measurement
without even touching the object. This guarantees safe and sani-
tary measurements within seconds.
Multiple uses (wide range of measurement)
This thermometer offers a wide range of measurement from
0 - 100.0 °C / 32.0 - 212.0 °F, meaning the unit can be used to
measure body temperature or it also has a feature allowing it to be
used to measure surface temperature of the following examples:
• 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 incorporates an
advanced infrared sensor, ensuring that each measurement is
accurate and reliable.
Gentle and easy to use
• The ergonomic design enables simple and easy use of the ther-
mometer.
• This thermometer can even be used on a sleeping child without
causing any interruption.
• This thermometer is quick, therefore child-friendly.
Multiple readings recall
Users will be able to recall the last 30 readings with a record of
both time and date when entering the recall mode, enabling effi-
cient 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.
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 device may only be used for the purposes described in
these instructions. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for
damage caused by incorrect application.
• Never immerse this device in water or other liquids. For
cleaning please follow the instructions in the «Cleaning
and Disinfecting» section.
• Do not use this device if you think it is damaged or notice
anything unusual.
• Never open this device.
• 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 thermometer can, therefore,
be unusually low.
• Ifthemeasurementresultisnotconsistentwiththepatient'sfinding
or unusually low, repeat the measurement every 15 minutes or
double check the result by another core body temperature
measurement.
• This device comprises sensitive components and must be
treated with caution. Observe the storage and operating condi-
tions described in the «Technical Specifications» section.

batteries should be removed.
 WARNING: Use of this device is not intended as a substi-
tute for consultation with your physician. This device is NOT
waterproof so do not 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.

• 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 always recommend verifying the readings
with a rectal measurement.
• In the following situations it is recommended that three temper-
atures are taken with the highest one taken as the reading:
1. Children under three years of age with a compromised
immune system and for whom the presence or absence of
fever is critical.
2. When the user is learning how to use the thermometer for
the first time until he/she has familiarized himself/herself with
the device and obtains consistent readings.
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 - 37.3 °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 150: 35.4 - 37.4 °C / 95.7 - 99.3 °F
