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.

Having looked at thermometers on Amazon they did not look good, so I choose your product instead. I got it for sea swimming but as soon as it arrived my fridge stopped working probably so I have used it there too. It’s great I would recommend it
