It is with great pleasure and gratitude that the Rosica team acknowledges and congratulates Exergen for 40 years of innovation, scientific advancement, and success. We thank you for our 13-year client/agency partnership.

Drs. Frank and Marybeth Pompei are committed to the nursing community and to healthcare professionals everywhere. It is essential to their company’s mission.

The duo has dedicated their lives to advancing science through noninvasive thermometry; they support scientific research and offer professional development to nurses across the US.

Exergen manufactures two principal TemporalScanner thermometers – a professional version for hospitals and physicians’ offices, and a consumer model, which is sold through all major retailers. Exergen’s accuracy is supported by more than 80 peer-reviewed published studies covering all ages from preterm infants to geriatrics and all areas of care, from hospitals to homes. In fact, more than two billion temperatures are taken each year with TemporalScanners.

Temperature being a determining factor of COVID-19, Exergen is providing thousands of much needed thermometers to front line healthcare professionals (HCPs). These help protect patients and HCPs alike.

We are honored to acknowledge Exergen for their tireless work during the pandemic and for the company’s 40th birthday. This is quite an accomplishment and an important legacy.
