Frequently Asked Questions

Q: has anyone compared accuracy to digial thermometers? I get a higher temp on vicks digial

A: In searching the medical literature, it appears as if this type of thermometer (i.e. a "galinstan thermometer" or GT ) is the most accurate. The tradeoff is speed. Digital thermometers (DT) are much faster, and still reasonably accurate whereas the GT takes longer to get a measurement but is considered the most accur… see more In searching the medical literature, it appears as if this type of thermometer (i.e. a "galinstan thermometer" or GT ) is the most accurate. The tradeoff is speed. Digital thermometers (DT) are much faster, and still reasonably accurate whereas the GT takes longer to get a measurement but is considered the most accurate of the alternatives. see less

Q: Can the Thermometer be used recctally as well?

A: I don't think so the head is small unlike a rectal thermometer that has a large head

Q: What fluid is in this, if not mercury?

A: Galinstan is a brand-name and a common name for a liquid metal alloy whose composition is part of a family of eutectic alloys mainly consisting of gallium, indium, and tin. Such eutectic alloys are liquids at room temperature, typically melting at +11 °C (52 °F), while commercial Galinstan melts at −19 °C (−2 °F).1 … see more Galinstan is a brand-name and a common name for a liquid metal alloy whose composition is part of a family of eutectic alloys mainly consisting of gallium, indium, and tin. Such eutectic alloys are liquids at room temperature, typically melting at +11 °C (52 °F), while commercial Galinstan melts at −19 °C (−2 °F).1 An example of a typical eutectic mixture is 68% Ga, 22% In, and 10% Sn (by weight) though proportions vary between 62–95% Ga, 5–22% In, 0–16% Sn (by weight) while remaining eutectic; the exact composition of the commercial product “Galinstan” is not publicly known. Due to the low toxicity and low reactivity of its component metals, galinstan finds use as a replacement for many applications that previously employed the toxic liquid mercury or the reactive NaK (sodium–potassium alloy). see less

Q: Does it read the temperature underarm?

A: Yes. It reads temps under the arm but it may take a minute or two longer to register.

Q: Where is this made?

A: It is made in Germany. The mercury-free thermometer, Geratherm classic, has been developed by Geratherm Medical AG and contains a patented liquid alloy consisting of gallium, indium and tin-called Galinstan.

Q: How dangerous is this if it breaks? Best clean up method> Thanks

A: Your worse danger is from the broken glass not the chemicals in the thermometer. So put on Your safety glasses, rubber gloves, steel toe boots, HEPA breathing regulator, and sound canceling ear muffs. … see more Your worse danger is from the broken glass not the chemicals in the thermometer. So put on Your safety glasses, rubber gloves, steel toe boots, HEPA breathing regulator, and sound canceling ear muffs. Then get a broom and dust pan. The rest of my comment is NSFW. see less
