Adtemp Temple Touch Thermometer Overview

The Adtemp Temple Touch Thermometer by American Diagnostic Corporation obtains fast and accurate temperature readings by gently placing the sensor probe at the temple. In just six seconds, the temperature reading is displayed on its easy-to-read LCD screen. This is a gentler and noninvasive method to obtain body temperature measurements for infants and children in comparison to a rectal thermometer.

Common Uses

This temporal thermometer is easy to use, making it a great tool to have at home to quickly get results. It's also an invaluable hospital supply to have in a high-traffic clinical setting. Since the onset of COVID-19, daily temperature screenings are commonplace at businesses and hospitals as a preventative measure. This method is used as a cost-effective approach. By the nature of its design, it is sanitary and cost efficient — no costly probe covers, no waste. It's easy to administer and read without any additional materials or hassle.


How Adtemp Technology Works

Adtemp 427 Temple Touch Thermometer uses patented conductive technology that measures the heat flow from the temporal artery. For this reason, it is critical to properly place the probe in the temporal region and not the forehead. It only requires a gentle touch held firmly in place to ensure good contact with the skin until the temperature reading is displayed within 6-8 seconds.

This thermometer has a large display readout and can switch between both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales. It requires two AAA batteries (included) and will last at least 1000 cycles over 24 months. To save battery life, it will automatically power off when it's not in use after a minute. This model comes packaged to be hung for display.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How accurate is the ADC 427?
Temperature readings are affected by many factors, including if the patient has recently exercised or consumed a hot or cold beverage. Accuracy is also dependent on the placement of the probe along the temporal artery. Additionally, make sure the skin isn't in direct sunlight or near any heat or cooling source.

In general, are temporal thermometers accurate?
Yes, research suggests that temporal artery thermometers are an excellent noninvasive alternative to rectal digital thermometers.1

How do I change the ADC thermometer to Fahrenheit?
The default is set up to Fahrenheit. To interchange between Celcius and Fahrenheit, press the multifunction button when the thermometer is in the off position. Press and hold the button for five seconds. The hourglass icon will display an F or C to select, and then press the release button.

What body temperature is considered a fever?
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) designates a fever at 100.4° Fahrenheit or 38° Celcius or greater.
