From the manufacturer
Highly accurate ear thermometer
Braun ThermoScan measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. The ear accurately reflects the core body temperature because the eardrum shares the blood supply with the temperature control center in the brain, making the ear an excellent site to measure temperature. When core body temperature rises, it is quickly detectable in the ear.
The ear thermometer brand most recommended by pediatricians
Based on an Arendt Consulting survey reporting that of the surveyed pediatricians who recommend a brand of thermometers to their patients, Braun is the most recommended brand.
Great for infants, toddlers, and adults
Braun ThermoScan measures body temperature quickly, gently and accurately, ensuring you can
easily monitor your family’s health. Disposable lens filters ensure you can use the thermometer with multiple family members without the risk of cross-contamination.
A pre-warmed tip minimizes the cooling effect that could result from the introduction of a cool probe tip. The patented pre-warmed tip helps ensure accuracy, measurement after measurement to a tenth of a degree.
Highly accurate reading
The patented positioning system confirms good position in the ear with a light and a beep to ensure accurate temperature measurement.
Disposable lens filters
Designed so you can easily switch between users without having to spend time cleaning the probe. Lens filters also ensure earwax residue does not impact accuracy of the reading. 21 lens filters are included in the package.
Large, easy-to-read display
Easily view results at a glance. A built-in memory function recalls the last temperature reading allowing you to keep track of fluctuations.

We have used this thermometer maybe 10 times since we bought it, and it has already stopped working. The screen and light just keep flashing. We have changed the batteries, changed the lens cover, nothing works.
We take excellent care of our things and keep our medical items in a plastic bin with a lid in the hall closet. There is no reason on our end for this failure. We are very disappointed in this thermometer. Just FYI, this thermometer is made in Mexico
***UPDATE*** I contacted Braun and let them know that the thermometer stopped working. They had us ship it back to them and they sent us a new one at no cost. This process took a couple of weeks. Customer service was good. I opened up the new one and took my temperature 5x in each ear...and every single reading was different ranging from 96.1 to 98.2. So, the new one they sent me doesn't seem to read correctly. At this point, If I could give this thermometer ZERO STARS, I would. BUYER BEWARE. C'mon Braun, get your act together. You used to make good products. What happened? I guess Braun is just not a name I can trust anymore. This is a medical device that people rely on to be accurate, and for some, an incorrect reading might cause them some health issues, not knowing they have a fever. Not good...

We ordered this by checking the reviews, so my suggestion is do not trust others reviews & waste your money on this trash
You are throwing your money away on this purchase.
It does come with a box of 20 shields, and they are provided for hygienic purposes... considering that it is my husband and I, and (as I previously mentioned) the fact that most communicable diseases are not spread through Earwax, we are fine wiping the little plastic shields off and just reusing until it gets funky.
The fact that it does not have a backlight does not bother me, since I don't take temperatures in the dark and it will remember the last temperature you took... so even if you needed to take your sleeping family member's temp, just turn the thermometer off and on once you're in a lit area and you'll see their temperature.
I see a lot of reviews picking this unit apart, but here's what I bought: A thermometer that accurately measures temperature in the ear.
Here's what I received: A thermometer that accurately measures temperature in the ear.
It was affordable, it works well, and I can use regular rechargeable batteries in this thermometer.
