To operate safely in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses must ensure that they minimise the risk of admitting infected people to their site.

In addition to the core precautions of social distancing, hand hygiene, and face coverings, many authorities also recommend body temperature screening as a frontline protection for anyone entering a facility. This detects elevated temperatures, which could be a symptom of infection. 

The accuracy of this screening system is critical, as it reduces the number of false positives – which cause delays and frustrate customers – and false negatives – which could allow infected people into the area.

Safe measurement is a critical priority for any gatekeeper system, to ensure the risk of spreading the infection is kept low.

Complex screening systems, or those that require social distancing to be compromised, can reduce both the safety and accuracy of thermal screening.

As established experts in world-leading temperature measurement solutions, AMETEK Land has developed the VIRALERT 3 over the course of more than a decade. This combination of experience and knowledge has delivered a real-time monitoring solution that’s both accurate and easy to use, delivering the first line of protection against COVID-19.
