AMETEK Land Addresses Key Facts about Human Body Temperature Screening in Latest Video

Monday, September 28, 2020

National and international agencies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend screening for skin temperature in addition to other core counter measures as a tool to fight the spread of COVID-19. 

But with so many different temperature measurement products available, how do you know which method is best? 

AMETEK Land has released a new video which outlines the facts about human body temperature screening.

Topics covered include:

  • The key differences between thermal imaging and handheld non-contact infrared thermometers
  • The additional liabilities of using hand-held non-contact thermometers including poor accuracy and violating social distancing
  • The benefits of using a non-contact thermal imaging system, such as VIRALERT 3.


VIRALERT 3 meets the challenges of screening for skin temperature. It is also manufactured in the UK and is fully National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) compliant, conforming to the latest Food & Drugs Administration (FDA) guidelines for temperature screening.
