ThermoFocus Animal® the Professional Non-Contact Thermometer for Pet Owners

Infrared non-contact clinical thermometer which allows an instant, hygienic and extremely accurate measurement of animal temperature without any contact with the animal.

THERMOFOCUS ANIMAL®, a technological innovation
Thermofocus Animal® is the evolution of Thermofocus®, the world′s first non-contact thermometer intended for human use. With Thermofocus®, Tecnimed introduced the non-contact measurement, thus revolutionising the way that temperatures are taken. The thermometers, designed and produced in Italy, are provided with a technology constantly updated and covered by patents, and are unsurpassed leaders on the market.

THERMOFOCUS PRO® is the first non-contact clinical thermometer in the world and the only one that is able to clearly indicate the exact point and the correct distance where to take the temperature. It measures the temperature in a specific point and at an accurate and determinate distance. It provides instantaneous digital reading of body temperature without any contact with the body skin or mucosa.

After revolutionising and simplifying the way human beings' temperatures are taken, Tecnimed decided to do the same for animals....
Usually, animals′ internal temperatures are taken by introducing a traditional thermometer in their rectum, a procedure which is invasive and annoying for the animal, and often difficult for the person taking the measurement.

Thermofocus Animal® is able to take your pet′s body temperature in a few seconds at a distance without contact and without causing discomfort or stress. THERMOFOCUS Animal® does not use laser radiations; it is safe and harmless.

THERMOFOCUS® Animal can also be used to measure the temperature of pet food, bath water, kennel etc., thanks to its accuracy over a wide temperature span.
THERMOFOCUS® is protected by a number of patents and patents pending filed internationally.
THERMOFOCUS® is a trade mark registered in Italy and extended internationally.

Technical background

All objects and living beings emit infrared radiations of varying wavelengths in relation to their surface characteristics. Particularly, animals eyes emit infrared radiations in wavelengths of between 5 and 14 micrometres.

Thermofocus Animal® uses a sensor (thermopile) that, when stimulated by infrared radiations, emits an electrical signal, which is amplified and then converted into a digital signal which is elaborated in a sophisticated way using exclusive algorithms according to the temperature of the environment.

Temperature measurement

Thermofocus Animal® is able to take your pet′s body temperature at a distance and on the eye: without touching its skin, without bothering it, in a few seconds and in a simple way.  Any animals′ body is subject to heat dispersion and, according to their species, is more or less covered with fur and vascularized. Nonetheless, eyes are not covered with fur, they are always highly vascularized, and moreover they replicate the actual internal body temperature.  They are therefore the ideal point for a precise body temperature to be taken.

The right distance between the eye and the thermometer for a correct measurement is easily determined thanks to a LED system emitting two light arc (normal light which is totally safe). When you press and hold down the “dog&cat” button, the LED system turns on.  As the thermometer is moved closer to the eye and reaches the right distance (approx. 3 cm), the two arcs converge to form a circle.

When you are at the correct distance, release the “dog&cat” button and keep the thermometer steady for less than one second until the lights flash and the temperature appears on the LCD display. There is no need to be concerned if the aiming lights are pointed into the eyes as the beams are not laser lights and are absolutely harmless.

Should the measurement on the eye not be possible, you can take the temperature on your pet′s rectum area, auricle or on the gum, with no contact and in a non-invasive way. You can search for the more comfortable area for both you and your pet.

THERMOFOCUS ANIMAL® is suitable for all animals
Due to the fact that the temperature of the animal changes depending on the species and breed of animal, but also in relation to the animals size, Thermofocus Animal® has been designed to be able to adapt to all animals.

Thermofocus Animal® has been calibrated according to averages statistically obtained from several tests made on pets and farm animals of different species. It is important to know that there is not such a thing as a unique “normal” body temperature common to all animals. If necessary, it is possible to set Thermofocus Animal® in accordance with the kind of pet and with the chosen measurement area, and adjust the thermometer to the pet′s standard temperature.
By using the "+/-"  button you can align Thermofocus Animal® to each pet.

THERMOFOCUS Animal® automatically adjusts to the environment
It is important to remember that each animal′s individual temperature varies throughout the day and according to the measurement site and in response to physical effort. Moreover, the body temperature can be affected by the outside temperature and other factors may also come into play.

Therefore, when the “dog&cat”  button is pressed for the body temperature reading, the Thermofocus Animal®  software automatically applies a correction factor according to the ambient conditions, thus giving a resulting value comparable to your pet′s internal temperature.

If the thermometer is handled for a long time or if the device is coming from a room with a significantly different temperature, you can let the device stabilize automatically by leaving it for at least 15 minutes in the room in which the measurement has to be taken, or you can run a manual calibration to correct the thermometer temperature.

Manual Quick Calibration System (MQCS)
It is easy to correct the internal temperature of the device and adjust it to the temperature of the environment where the pet is (the room temperature must preferably be in the 5-40°C temperature range). The system can work also in environments from -7 to +5 °C, but the accuracy is not guaranteed.
The thermometer keeps the calibration for 15 minutes.

The MQCS allows the device to immediately stabilise its temperature with the selected reference element in just 3 seconds.
To ensure a reliable temperature reading, do not aim the thermometer at a surface having a temperature obviously different from the pet′ environment. If you take the reading indoors, do not focus the thermometer on outside walls, windows, sources of heating or cooling (radiator, air conditioner, lamp, computer, surface in contact with the human body, etc. If you are taking the temperature outdoors, do not take the MQCS on the walls of a heated building. You can take the MQCS on the trunk of a tree, on the floor, or on the grass.

THERMOFOCUS ANIMAL® is multi-purpose

Thermofocus Animal® can also be used to take the temperature of objects, liquids or other surfaces in the 1-55°C (33.8 to 131.0°F) temperature range.

For example:

►Temperature of food, kennel, bathwater, etc.
►Room temperature by pointing the thermometer against a wall or a piece of furniture
►Temperature of a wound, inflammation, scar, burns, circulatory problem. You may also use Thermofocus Animal® to check the temperature of stimulated muscles, for instance, on horses (professional use).

Proceed as in the case of a body temperature measurement, but press the "home" button. These measurements must be considered as relative rather than absolute values. If taken on the skin, they will show the difference between two neighbouring or symmetrical areas. In these cases, the presence of fur, as long as equally spread on the concerned areas, is not too detrimental.

The device is powered by 4 AAA batteries that have a life of 10,000 measurements or 3 years, according to the use. The only necessary maintenance is to protect the wave-guide with its cover when the device is not in use.
