American Scientific Resources (ASR) has unveiled a new line of affordable 5-in-1 non-contact thermometers specifically designed to meet the needs of consumers and healthcare workers around the globe.

The company claims that by utilizing the latest technological innovations, it was able to make this new device affordable and accurate for the consumer and easy-to-use for a touch-less, instant temperature reading.

Hence, ASR believes that the new thermometer provides a multitude of solutions and fulfills significant needs for the modern day parent or health care provider. The new device includes the following features: ability to take a trauma-free, non-invasive temperature, completely hygienic, back-lit display to be seen in dark, and savings for commercial facilities by not having additional expenses associated with other thermometers, such as probe covers, disinfection methods.

The new thermometers will be partially manufactured in China at the company’s overseas location, with final sub-component assembly and packaging occurring at ASR’s Ohio and Florida facilities, said the company.

The company claims that production of the consumer model is scheduled to commence in February 2010, with an estimated full production capability exceeding 5000 units per day. The new Kidz-Med 5-in-1 non-contact consumer model is expected to have an MSRP of $49.95 domestically and nearly $80 in overseas markets.

Private label and other branded versions are currently being marketed to large retailers, global distributors and healthcare providers. The thermometer is expected to be available for purchase in the third quarter of 2010.
