Exergen has been granted US Patent No 7,787,938, entitled; ‘Temporal Artery Temperature Detector’ by the US Patent and Trademark Office, adding to the portfolio of intellectual property rights that it has developed for its non-invasive thermometry products.

The issued patent extends protection of the technology incorporated in Exergen’s medical thermometer brand, the TemporalScanner Temporal Artery Thermometers.

With 15 US patents protecting the TemporalScanner professional versions, and 10 US patents protecting the home model, Exergen continues to defend its intellectual property rights.
