FAST 9-Second Flexible Tip
Digital Thermometer
Thank you for purchasing a MABIS Digital Thermometer. Please read the following
instructions to achieve the most accurate temperatures and safe operation. With proper
care and use, your thermometer will provide you with years of reliable readings.
Your thermometer features a comfortable, soft, flexible tip, which conforms to the mouth
during temperature readings. It is enhanced with beeper and memory. The following
instructions will cover your thermometer’s features in further detail.
What is a “Normal” Temperature?
Although the generally accepted “normal” temperature reading is 98.6°F,
temperature readings can vary from 97°F to 99°F and still may be considered
“normal”. Variations in temperature can be attributed to activities such as exercise,
smoking, eating and drinking. Even time of day may influence your temperature. For
example, your temperature is lower in the morning than in the afternoon. Other
variations may be due to the location of the temperature reading. While the oral
temperature follows the guidelines previously described, a rectal temperature is
generally 1.0°F higher. Conversely, an axillary (under the arm) temperature will be
1.0°F lower.

Taking an Axillary Temperature (under the arm)
1. Wipe the underarm with a dry towel.
2. Place the probe tip under the arm so the tip is touching the skin with the
thermometer perpendicular to the body.
3. Position the arm across the chest so the probe tip is well covered by the arm. This
also insures the probe is not affected by the room’s air.
4. When the peak temperature has been reached, the °F will stop flashing and the
thermometer will sound four sets of five quick beeps.
5. To turn the unit off, press the ON/OFF button. The unit will automatically shut off
after approximately nine minutes.
NOTE: Axillary temperatures are generally 1.0°F lower than oral readings.
Taking a Rectal Temperature
Approximate measurement time: 9 seconds
NOTE: Rectal temperatures are an appropriate and reliable method for infants and
small children. Otherwise, this method should only be used when it is impossible or
impractical to take an oral or axillary temperature.
1. After applying the disposable probe cover, apply a water-soluble lubricant to
the tip.
2. Gently insert the probe a MAXIMUM of 1/2” into the rectum.
3. When the peak temperature has been reached, the oF will stop flashing and the
thermometer will sound four sets of five quick beeps.
4. To turn the unit off, press the ON/OFF button. The unit will automatically
power down after approximately ten minutes.
NOTE: Rectal temperatures are generally 1.0°F higher than oral readings.
Using Disposable Probe Covers
It is recommended to use the enclosed disposable probe covers to prevent cross
contamination. Additional probe covers can be purchased from your MABIS Dealer
or with the order form provided.

Cleaning Instructions
Before and after each use, clean the thermometer with a soft cloth and 70% isopropyl
alcohol diluted with water, or wash with COLD soapy water. An intact unit can be
submersed in water or alcohol. However, do not soak for an extended period of time.
1. The unit must never be sterilized by boiling, gas or steam autoclaves.
2. The use of any other solution or cleaning method beyond the above mentioned
may result in reliability problems with the thermometer and void your warranty.
How to Take Your Temperature
1. Clean and disinfect the thermometer according the instructions provided.
2. Apply a disposable probe cover to the clean, dry thermometer.
3. Determine whether the measurement site will be oral, rectal or underarm.
NOTE: Measurement time may vary based on the selected site.
4. Press the ON/OFF button (the unit will beep) to activate the thermometer.
This is the LCD display test, which insures all parts of the
display are functioning properly. Continue to hold the button
down and in approximately 2 seconds the display will show the
last recorded temperature as follows.
This display shows the last temperature reading. Within
approximately 2 seconds of releasing the button or if no reading
is stored in memory, the display will read as follows.
This display denotes normal operation.
“Err” denotes a malfunction.
The Lo with the flashing °F indicates the thermometer is ready
to take a temperature reading.
Approximate measurement time: 16 seconds
1. Using the diagram on the right, place the
probe tip under the tongue as near as
possible to the heat pocket. The diagram
also shows the temperature variables by
not placing the tip in the heat pocket
area.
NOTE: Drinking hot or cold fluids,
exercising, smoking or performing other
activities may raise or lower your
temperature. Therefore, it is important to
relax for approximately 5 minutes with your
mouth closed prior to taking a reading

2. The current temperature is shown and the °F will continue to flash during the
reading.
3. When the peak temperature has been reached, the °F will stop flashing and the
thermometer will sound four sets of five quick beeps.
4. To turn the unit off, press the ON/OFF button. The unit will automatically shut off
after approximately nine minutes.
NOTE: The mouth must remain closed during the measurement for the most
accurate reading. Opening the mouth could result in an extended measurement time
and may affect the reading.
