Frequently asked Questions about Ear Thermometers with Probe Cover Detector




Why must a probe cover be used with the Microlife ear thermometer?
The Microlife ear thermometer?s calibration is set with a probe cover. So, measurements without a probe cover result in poor measurement accuracy.
In addition, use of the thermometer without a cover can result in transmission of germs. (unacceptable hygiene) Even a small amount of earwax on the probe tip allows bacteria and fungus to grow outside the ear!
Please use a new cover for each measurement.
The probe cover also protects the infrared sensor from earwax, which can destroy the sensor.



How many times can I use the same probe cover?
Use a new cover for each measurement.
The cover gets dirty during a measurement and successive measurements will lack accuracy.
A dirty probe cover can grow germs that can be passed to the next user.
Repeated use of the same probe cover results in a loose fitting cover, leading to inaccurate measurements



Can the probe cover remain on the tip after measurement?
The probe cover should be removed after each measurement. Use of the thermometer without a cover can result in transmission of germs (unacceptable hygiene). A dirty probe cover can grow germs that can be passed to the next user.
Repeated use of the same probe cover results in a loose fitting cover, leading to inaccurate measurements.



When and how often should I clean or disinfect the Microlife ear thermometer?
Clean a dirty lens or housing as necessary.
Use an alcohol swab or a cotton swab moistened with alcohol (70% isopropyl, available in the pharmacy) to clean the thermometer casing and the measuring probe. Ensure that no liquid enters the interior of the thermometer. Never use abrasive cleaning agents, thinners, gasoline or benzene for cleaning. Never immerse the instrument in water or other cleaning liquids. Take care not to scratch the surface of the display.
