Glass thermometers are designed for measuring body temperature whether it is orally taken or through insertion of the rectum. Glass thermometers have two different coloured spirits to differentiate the between the two applications with blue suited to oral use and red suited red for rectal use. Glass thermometers are inexpensive and portable making them ideal to store at home as part of your home first aid kit. In our glass thermometer range we have included multipacks designed for the medical profession which represent exceptional value.
Coloured alcohol spirits are commonly found inside glass thermometers instead of mercury due to concerns over mercury’s toxicity.

This was listed as the Digi Duck, but what I received was the Digi Duckling (I know - but they're really not the same - the Duckling is a smaller, vastly inferior version of the Digi Duck, which was brilliant). Not what I wanted, and if I did, I would have ordered it from Amazon for half the price! Can't be arsed to send it back as sometimes life is just too short....
