48 Hour Fever Indicators

refrigerator thermometer

Product summary information:
For parents, it is often difficult to take your child’s temperature using a conventional thermometer fever test, especially when this needs to be done repeatedly during times when continual monitoring is necessary.  With the MATC 48-HR Continual Digital Human Fever Indicators, monitoring a young person’s temperature is now much easier. The 48-HR Continual Digital Human Fever Indicator is a valuable and simple instrument for obtaining an accurate indication as to whether or not you or your child has a fever over a 48-HR period of constant temperature monitoring. To apply the 48-HR Continual Digital Human Fever Indicators, you simply remove one of the kiss-cut adhesive monitors from the backing and apply it to an area under the armpit, on the chest or on the forehead of the child. For infants, it is always best to place the indicators on the upper back, between the shoulder blades, to avoid any potential choking hazards.

Reading Temperatures
The standard MATC 48-HR Continual Digital Human Fever Indicator provides a clearly visible temperature reading for five distinct temperatures. The Encapsulated Liquid Crystal technology on the indicator strip will accurately display, within 30 seconds of application, whether or not you or your child has a normal temperature or a fever.  If an “N” appears on the strip, body temperature is normal (36 degrees Celsius, 97º Fahrenheit). If any of the numbers appear on the strip in addition to the “N”, then the body temperature will correspond to the highest figure that appears in green; ranging from 37 degrees Celsius (99º F), 38 degrees Celsius (101º F), 39 degrees Celsius (103º F) and 40 degrees Celsius (105º F).  This enables the user to determine how elevated the fever may be during the monitoring period. Please note that this product is not meant to replace the clinical thermometer, but to indicate to the caregiver when a clinical thermometer should be administered during the monitoring period.

Hypoallergenic
This unique product is manufactured using a hypoallergenic adhesive and can be left on normal skin continually for up to 48 hours. In addition to children, this easy to use product is appealing to a large clientele, including senior citizens who appreciate the simplicity and convenience of this device. Other body temperature indicator products have been produced by MATC that provide various temperature level readings and/or graphics.

Custom configurations available:
Custom configurations of the product can be developed by MATC to suit any customer specifications. We always welcome the initiation of new and creative product concepts or formats.

FDA approved
Although more complete technical material for any of the MATC Encapsulated Liquid Crystal product line is available on request from our sales team, we should point out that the Fever Test product line has been carefully tested and developed in order to provide a body temperature reading which is accurate within 0.5 degrees Celsius at all levels. It is important to mention that all of the MATC Fever Indicator products have been engineered to compensate for the fact that the temperature of the surface of the skin is always approximately 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) less than the internal temperature of the body. Thus, when testing the cards in a laboratory environment, you will note that each temperature level on the ELC display appears with maximum green brightness at temperatures approximately 2 degrees Celsius (4º F) lower than the illustrated temperature. All formats of the MATC 48-HR Continual Digital Human Fever Indicators have been registered and approved for sale by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA registration # 3004193935).

The MATC Encapsulated Liquid Crystal products are recognized throughout the world as the leading technology of its kind. All of the MATC ELC products meet stringent quality control specifications to ensure the suitability and accuracy of all products developed for our diversified corporate clients. Detailed specifications of all MATC products and general information on ELC technology are available upon request from the Measurement and Technology Company.
