World's First Non-Contact Thermometer for Children Now Available at Walgreens Nationwide

Revolutionary Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 Lets Parents Get the Jump on Cold and

Flu Season

NEW PALTZ, N.Y., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Kidz-Med, Inc., a division of American Scientific Resources (Pink Sheets: ASFX), today announced the launch of the Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 Thermometer, the first non-contact clinical thermometer in the world, now available at Walgreens Stores nationwide and online at

Made in Italy, and long recommended by doctors throughout Europe and Asia, the revolutionary Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 takes a temperature in one second, without touching a child's skin or ear. Using a safe patented infrared technology, all you do is point the Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 at a child's forehead and the core body temperature is displayed on an easy to read screen. It is as accurate as a rectal thermometer and more accurate than an ear thermometer.

"As a physician and father of two children, I know how difficult it is to take the temperature of a squirming, wriggling, sick and fretful child," says Dr. Christopher F. Tirotta, founder of Kidz-Med, Inc., and Director of Cardiac Anesthesia at the Congenital Heart Institute of Miami Children's Hospital and Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. "With cold and flu season approaching, the Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 can really take the worry out of wondering if your child is running a fever while it completely alleviates the hassle of getting an accurate reading. It can even help detect inflammation, circulatory problems, and infections."

The Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 is a new parent's best friend, taking the fear and anxiety out of caring for a new baby, and offers the tried and true parent a convenience they could never have imagined in caring for a sick child. The Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 takes 5 essential temperature readings: core body temperature, baby's milk, food, room and bath water temperatures. No more fear of scalding bathwater or milk that's just too hot or too cold and the memory function stores up to nine temperature readings so that you can track a fever and know whether your child is recovering or getting worse -- and that you need a trip to the doctor. The Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 is non-invasive, quick, precise, hygienic, safe, and trauma-free.

"At Walgreens, we're always seeking out new products that offer solutions to consumer needs," said Robert Tompkins, Divisional Merchandise Manager for Health and Wellness for Walgreens Stores. "We believe the Thermofocus(R) 5-in- 1 will have strong appeal for parents and we're pleased to be the exclusive U.S. retailer of this advanced technology."

The Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 retails for $99.95
