Choose the ear thermometer brand most used by pediatricians.*
The Braun ThermoScan® is designed to take the body temperature of your family in a fast, gentle and easy to use way and give you some peace of mind when your child comes down with a fever. Used by more pediatricians' offices than any other thermometer brand, the ThermoScan® features a pre-warmed tip that improves accuracy, a unique guidance system that ensures precise results, and infrared technology that takes your child's temperature in seconds.
Why measure in the ear?
Measuring body temperature in the ear is proven more accurate than forehead or rectal.**
Braun ThermoScan® measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. The ear accurately reflects the core body temperature because the eardrum shares the blood supply with the temperature control center in the brain, making the ear an excellent site to measure temperature. When the temperature rises, it is immediately detectable in the ear.
Recommended for infants, children and adults
Braun ThermoScan® is gentle, safe and easy to use on the entire family.
Pre-warmed tip with ExacTemp®
Unlike other thermometers, Braun ThermoScan® features a pre-warmed tip that minimizes the cooling effect that could result from the introduction of a cool probe tip. The patented pre-warmed tip helps ensure accuracy, measurement after measurement to a tenth of a degree. The patented ExacTemp® positioning system confirms good position in the ear with a light and a beep to ensure accurate temperature measurement.
Disposable lens filter
Braun ThermoScan® works with disposable lens filters to help prevent the spread of germs. Always replace the filter before each use to maintain accuracy and hygiene.
Memory function recalls the last temperature reading allowing you to keep track of of fluctuations.
