Well-known as the most accurate ear thermometer designed for home us. Braun Thermoscam measures the infared heat generated by the eardrum and the surrounding tissues. The eardrum shared blood supply with the temperature control center in thte brain, so measuring ear temperature is more accurate than measuring other sites such as under the arm or in the mouth.
Unlike other ear thermometers, the Braun Thermoscan Exac Temp features a pre-warmed tip - this minimises the cooling effect that may result from the introductions of a cool probe tip. The pre-warmed tip helps ensure an accurate measurement .
The incredibly quick measurement is ideal for using with babies and toddlers, who are unlikely to sit still with a slower thermometer!
The Braun Thermoscan is most accurate and hygienic when you use a new lens filter with each use.
Add a pack of 40 extra lens filters for just $20.

I really wish I got this sooner, struggled for ages with cheaper electronic ones but this gives total peace of mind when my kids are poorly.
You do need to read the instructions to get the most of all the features with regards to the memory etc.
It would be better if it came in a wee box or something so that you can keep the instructions, filters and thermometer together - I just opened the plastic pack carefully though.
