WESTON, Fla. — American Scientific Resources has received a private-label purchase order for a Shoppers Drug Mart VeraTemp noncontact thermometer.
The initial order for 5,000 units will supply VeraTemp to Shoppers Drug Mart’s chain of almost 1,200 Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix stores across Canada.
The private-label version includes the “Life” Brand logo and packaging insert card to identify the VeraTemp under the Shoppers Drug Mart brand.
With the expansion of the VeraTemp thermometer into the Canadian market via Shoppers Drug Mart, the manufacturer anticipates that the new private label will bolster its distribution into additional retail accounts.
The VeraTemp unit is about the size of a remote control and is powered by two included AAA batteries. To measure a person’s body temperature, aim at the individual’s forehead and press the scan button. The VeraTemp measures the forehead and ambient temperature, completes thousands of calculations with a proprietary algorithm and promises to produce an accurate body temperature reading.
