  • Publication number: 20210010996
    Abstract: Embodiments include a device for testing biological specimen. The device can include a receiving mechanism to receive a carrier. The carrier may include a holding area. The device includes a camera to capture a plurality of images of the holding area. A processor in the device may utilize the camera module to: adaptively select, based on the plurality of images of the holding area, an analytical algorithm suitable for a motion property that is characteristic of the biological specimen being tested; and perform a set of analytic processes that corresponds to the selected analytic algorithm on the captured imagery to generate an analytic result associated with the biological specimen.

  • Publication number: 20130018626
    Abstract: A non-contact type temperature sensing device includes an emitting unit, a detecting unit and a single chip microprocessor. The emitting unit emits a signal to a temperature-measured body. The detecting unit receiving a reflected signal emitted by the emitting unit and reflected by the temperature-measured body. The single chip microprocessor is electrically connected to the emitting unit and the detecting unit. The single chip microprocessor determines a measuring distance between non-contact type temperature sensing device and the temperature-measured body according to the reflected signal. When the measuring distance is located within a preset measuring range, the single chip microprocessor outputs an enabling signal of measuring temperature.

  • Publication number: 20050094705
    Abstract: A thermometer for determining body temperature at a first body site, such as the mouth or rectum, has an infrared sensor located in a probe for viewing and detecting heat radiated from a second body site such as the forehead. Ambient temperature is measured concurrently. The measured second site temperature is used as a reference base, and the sensed operating ambient temperature is used as an index so as to calculate a corresponding temperature of the first body site. A final temperature reading display is read from a lookup table containing three groups of data derived from a comprehensive clinical test done previously with a substantial number of measuring targets. The data groups include a second body site temperature database, an operating ambient temperature database, and a first body site temperature database.
