From Ebola to Coronavirus
In times of increasing mobility, infections don’t stop at national borders either. Whether ebola, SARS or coronavirus: no-one wants to imagine the consequences of an epidemic or even a pandemic. That’s why it’s in the interest of public health to identify risk persons in large groups of people early. The operators of heavily frequented facilities such as airports, shopping malls or sports stadiums carry a special responsibility for disease prevention.
An important indicator for an infection is increased body temperature (compared to other people in the immediate surroundings), generally known as fever. Thermography is the ideal method for scanning not just individuals, but also large flows of people. To do this, the temperature at the inner corner of the eye is measured, and an alarm triggered if it deviates. This allows persons with increased body temperature to be identified quickly and reliably, and to be isolated for more exact testing.
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.
- Not suitable for diagnostic measurement in the medical field.
