Non-contact Temperature Screenings
Our Temp Chek™ devices come equipped with infrared (IR) non-contact thermal reading technology. This technology provides fast and accurate temperature readings from an individual’s wrist or forehead.
No personal identifying information is recorded within Temp Chek™, making the temperature reading both FERPA and HIPPA compliant.
Accurate Temperature Readings
Temp Chek™ readings are displayed in seconds and are within a ±0.6°F margin of error. We recommend placing your body within a few inches of the temperature scanners for the most accurate readings.
*It is important to note that IR technology records surface temperature, not internal temperature. Because of this, the environment in which you use Temp Chek™ may affect results.
Sanitization with Every Use
Temp Chek™ Plus dispenses a liberal portion of hand sanitizer automatically with every use. This promotes good personal hygiene and prevents further spread of disease on your campus.
Each device holds up to 1000 ml (33.81 fl oz) of hand sanitizer for a long lasting supply.

What is the average body temperature of a healthy individual?
According to a Harvard Medical School blog post, recent studies have shown that the average body temperature of a healthy individual tends to be closer to 97.5°F. Throughout the day, our body’s temperature fluctuates. In this article from Cleveland Clinic, they suggest that the typical healthy range for body temperature is between 97-99°F, dependent on factors such as age, time of day and measurement method.
