Tempa•DOT™ Plus – Rectal’s accuracy is the same as, or better than, other thermometers commonly used in a healthcare setting. Each dot has its own formulated temperature point that fires at a specific temperature. When a dot fires, its color changes from brown to blue. The number of dots that fire is dependent upon the patient’s temperature. The last blue dot provides the accurate reading of the patient’s rectal temperature.

Tempa•DOT™ & NexTemp®: Differences
There are quite a few differences between Tempa•DOT™ & NexTemp®. The main difference being that the Tempa•DOT™ product line is made for single-use, while NexTemp® products are multiple-use. Unlike Tempa•DOT, NexTemp has no climate controlled storage requirements, the shelf life is 5 years from the date of manufacture, and the thermometers reset instead locking in. Tempa•DOT has a 2-year shelf life and the products have orange dots when unfired and they turn blue for readings. NexTemp products have bright green dots that turn black for readings. Both thermometers look similar, but have different functionality.
