UPDATED FEATURES GIVE PARENTS A COMFORTING, ACCURATE OPTION FOR TEMPERATURE TAKING
The Exergen TemporalScanner™, used in thousands of healthcare facilities and millions of homes, and backed by more than 50 peer-reviewed published clinical studies, has announced the release of a new and improved model, the Smart Glow. The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner thermometer features a softly illuminated display to make it easier to take a temperature while a child sleeps, a silent mode option to not waken sleeping children, an eight-temperature memory storage capacity to automatically track a fever, and the ability to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius modes. The Smart Glow adds all of these new features while maintaining the elegant simplicity of a one-button operation.
The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner thermometer accurately reads a temperature in two seconds and gauges body temperature by capturing the naturally emitted heat from skin over the temporal artery, which runs across the forehead and is directly connected to the heart via the carotid artery.
“We created the Smart Glow to make life easier for every member of the family, and particularly for moms with sick children and infants,” said Dr. Francesco Pompei, CEO of Exergen Corporation. “The updated features, suggested and tested by moms, will alleviate the stress of taking the temperature of a child who isn’t feeling well.”
The Exergen TemporalScanner infrared thermometer is tested six times for accuracy during manufacture at Exergen’s plant outside of Boston and comes with a one-year warranty. The thermometer is easy to use, with just a few simple steps: Simply depress and hold its large, soft button and lightly scan across the forehead. A red LED light and soft beep indicate a correct scan. It runs on one 9-volt battery (included), and meets and exceeds all regulatory requirements, including FDA, ASTM, EC, and UL.
Exergen markets two models of the TemporalScanner thermometer: a professional version for doctors' offices and hospitals, and a consumer model sold in major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies "R" Us, Toys "R" Us, Kroger and BJ's. More than one billion temperatures are taken each year with the TemporalScanner. It is used in thousands of hospitals, clinics, and pediatricians' offices in the country, as well as in millions of homes, and is the #1 recommended thermometer by pediatricians. For the third year in a row it is the #1 selling retail thermometer. The research supporting the Exergen thermometer accuracy covers all ages from preterm infants to geriatrics and all care areas from hospitals to homes.

About Old Pulteney
Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky is crafted at Pulteney Distillery in Wick, Scotland. The distillery was founded in 1826 by James Henderson at the height of Wick’s herring boom. The distillery lies in the heart of “Pulteneytown,” which was one of the largest and most important herring fishing ports in Europe. Old Pulteney has a long standing association with the sea and is the official scotch of US Sailing. Its carefully crafted taste carries the windswept and rugged character of the North, the salty and fresh air of the North Sea, and the distillery’s rich maritime heritage runs through every drop of this fine malt.
