Research Facts
Thermometers have a long history of medical use; temperature first linked to illness in 1700s and the first practical medical thermometer invented by Sir Thomas Allbutt in 1867.
Tempa-Dot Single Use Oral Thermometers use chemical indicators that are activated by heat to measure temperature; disposable thermometers generate more waste than traditional thermometers, but can also be more sanitary and limit the spread of germs between patients.
The Tempa-Dot trademark was first filed filed by Organon Inc. in 1975 and has since been used by 3M and Medical Indicators.
