* ThermoWorks WAND Blue holds an FDA device registration number and has the designation FDA-Cleared. WAND Blue is categorized as a Class II medical device under the category listing 'Thermometer, Electronic, Clinical'. The FDA-Approval designation is only given to Class III products like drugs, pacemakers, and vaccines that pose a higher risk to humans, and require a different level of testing and approval. Class I and II products are not tested to the same level and are “cleared”.
ThermoWorks WAND Blue gives you proven accuracy when you need it most.

**EMC/RFI:Readings may be affected if the unit is operated within radio frequency electromagnetic field strength of approximately 3 volts per meter, but the performance of the instrument will not be permanently affected.
*FDA-cleared for safety & accuracy for kids and adults. ThermoWorks Wand Blue Thermometer measures infrared energy radiated from the skin at the center of the forehead area. This captured energy is collected through the lens and converted to a body temperature value (Displays oral equivalent temperature).

It’s helpful to know each individual’s normal temperature when they are well. This is the best way to accurately diagnose a fever. To get a reference value, we suggest taking multiple readings (5 to 10) over one minute, taking the highest number to determine “normal temperature”.

Is WAND Blue ‘FDA-Approved’?
The FDA does not “Approve” moderate-risk medical devices (Class II) like dialysis equipment, many types of catheters, and forehead thermometers. Instead the FDA “Clears” Class II devices once they have demonstrated that the device is substantially equivalent to a legally marketed device. Class III devices that are in the higher-risk category such as mechanical heart valves, and implantable infusion pumps generally require FDA approval. The FDA has provided the article, Is It Really ‘FDA-Approved’ for more information.
From section 502 of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) which covers device misbranding: There is any representation that creates an impression of official approval because of the possession by the firm of an FDA registration number.
WAND Blue holds an FDA device registration number and is ‘FDA-Cleared’ under the Class II designation ‘Thermometer, Electronic, Clinical’.
Any Class II device claiming that it is ‘FDA-Approved’ clearly violates the FDA’s misbranding guidelines.
Why doesn’t ThermoWorks use the FDA Logo like I’ve seen used by other forehead thermometer suppliers?
“Because it may violate federal law and could subject those responsible to civil and/or criminal liability.” Here is the introductory paragraph to FDA’s Logo Policy:
The FDA logo is for the official use of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and not for use on private sector materials. To the public, such use would send a message that FDA favors or endorses a private sector organization or the organization’s activities, products, services, and/or personnel (either overtly or tacitly), which FDA does not and cannot do. Unauthorized use of the FDA logo may violate federal law and subject those responsible to civil and/or criminal liability.
Use of the FDA logo is strictly prohibited, and those who do are in clear violation of FDA’s Logo Policy.
ThermoWorks Health App
Track personal temperature readings over time for you and your immediate family right on your smart device for up to 15 people. Store an optional text note with each reading to keep track of activities and countermeasures for fever control. With digital temperature tracking over time, you’ll learn each individual’s “normal” core temperature when they are well, to more accurately diagnose elevated temperatures. The software allows these learned “normal” core temperatures to be set by individual for managing high-temperature alerts. ThermoWorks Health App’s graphing feature plots the last 25 readings for fever management tracking. Readings are automatically linked to your account for easy recall and archiving.
For tracking students, customers, employees, and patients WAND Blue can be integrated into mobile apps for quick and easy digital storage and tracking of individual temperatures. Click here for a list of software providers that have mobile solutions that are HIPAA and corporate quality compliant.
