About Us

Exergen Corporation is the recognized world leader in industrial and medical non-invasive temperature technology. From providing temperature sensors for NASA and various industries to creating one of the world’s most popular baby gifts, Exergen creates non-invasive temperature measurement devices providing lower cost, higher accuracy, less invasiveness, and greater reliability than ever previously possible.

The creator of the first temporal artery thermometer—the Temporal Scanner™, the most efficacious, non-invasive thermometer ever created. Exergen holds over 100 issued and pending U.S. and foreign patents, and is the only manufacturer of retail medical thermometers in the U.S. Presently, half of hospitals and pediatricians currently use the Exergen TemporalScanner, and well over 4 million consumers use one at home.

Founded by Harvard-research scientist .Dr. Francesco Pompei over two decades ago, Exergen Corporation is based in Watertown, Massachusetts, USA.

Some of its world-wide innovations include:

1980 - Exergram - first quantitative heat loss camera system for energy conservation.
1983 - Microscanner - first pocket sized infrared temperature scanner.
1985 - D-Series - first and still only emissivity error-free infrared thermometer.
1987 - E-Series - first infrared scanner designed exclusively for electrical inspection.
1987 - Dermatemp - first infrared scanner for emissivity error-free skin temperature assessment.
1988 - Ototemp - first scanning tympanic medical thermometer.
1989 - Equine Scanner - first scanner for injury assessment of equine athletes.
1990 - Ototemp Veterinary - first tympanic thermometer for animals.
1991 - IRt/c - first and still only unpowered IR thermocouple, world's most widely used sensor.
1991 - LighTouch - first ear thermometer employing arterial heat balance.
