Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised Bought this device for cursory measurements of surface temperatures, and it works fine for our purposes. Definitely not a high-precision machine, but that is not what it is advertised as.

Hi, is OS561 IR thermometer usable for medical purpose? I want to use it to check temperature of my staff in the purpose of detecting COVID-19 affected people

Asked by: Fernand
Thank you for your interest in our Product. The OS561 is not usable for medical purposes. You may want to consider instead the Handheld IR Omega OS-820D or the IR200 for Non-Contact Body Temperature measurements
