Omerga Engineering , The world’s largest seller of temperature sensors, has published an alert on their web site advising that they will not sell any of their Infrared Thermometers for use in diagnosing SARS or in any use connected with measuring the body temperature of humans!
To quote: “All OMEGA’s IR devices are intended for scientific, technical and industrial purposes ONLY. They are NOT to be used as a diagnostic tool in relation to the SARS epidemic, since they are NOT designed for, intended to, or capable of measuring human body temperature.”
This follows the disclaimer published by Raytek Corp on their web site, reported earlier.
Note: Omega Engineering does not sell Infrared Thermal Imager Systems.
