From Ebola to Coronavirus: Fever Management with the thermal imaginer testo 885 / testo890

Why fever detection?

Our world is more interconnected than ever. But in these times of increasing mobility, infections don't stop at borders either. It's easier than ever for infections such as ebola, SARS or the coronavirus to spread throughout the world, and no one wants to imagine the consequences of an epidemic or even a pandemic. This is why it is becoming increasingly important for the sake of public health to have the capabilities to identify people posing a risk in large groups as early as possible. The operators of heavily frequented facilities such as airports, shopping malls or sports stadiums have a special responsibility for disease control and protection.

Why fever measurement with thermography?

One of the primary indicators for infection is increased body temperature (in comparison to other people in the immediate surroundings), generally known as a fever. Thermography is the ideal method for scanning not just individuals, but also crowds and flows of people. The process for doing this requires that the inner corners of the eye are measured, and an alarm is triggered if it deviates. By doing this, people with elevated temperatures can be identified quickly and reliably, before being isolated to conduct more exact testing.

Why fever measurement with Testo thermal images?

With the new testo FeverDetection assistant, the thermal imagers testo 885/testo 890 are perfect for identifying potentially ill persons: 

  • Reliable: up to 1280 x 960 pixels resolution (with testo SuperResolution) and good thermal sensitivity 
  • Flexible: thanks to an HDMI interface for data transfer to an external screen, they can also be used in semi-stationary applications such as security checks
  • Easy: can be used by the most diverse staff, thanks to high level of user convenience. For the purposes of fast training of security personnel and staff, we will soon be providing a video with step-by-step instructions.
The testo 885 / testo 890 is an ideal measure of ensuring operators with high thoroughfare business's are playing their part in protecting public health. It is quick, convenient, non-evasive, and allows people to feel safe and secure. For more information on thermal imagers, contact the team at Testo New Zealand today!
