About the Product

Temp-N-Toss Disposable Forehead Thermometer Strips are the fast, easy, and eco-friendly way to check for a fever or monitor temperatures for children and adults! Temp-N-Toss thermometer strips are specially designed to give a quick, accurate reading, and the medical-grade adhesive means they'll stay in place for continual monitoring for up to 48 hours. Plus, the non-invasive forehead strips are ideal for checking the temperature of a fussy toddler, sleeping infant or cranky child. Each all-paper thermometer is free of latex, Mylar, glass, mercury and other harmful chemicals, and they do not require batteries. Temp-N-Toss Disposable Forehead Thermometer Strips are also perfect for travel; just slip them in a pocket, purse, or diaper bag so you can always have them on hand.

Company Background

Tempagenix was founded by two friends and colleagues who had lunch during an Ohio Regional Valley Regional Partner Organization Catch the Wave conference.  Shelly Heller, President of Allied Shipping & Packaging Supplies and April Pollock, Vice President of the C-3 Group, began discussing an issue with a mutual manufacturing friend about promoting an inventory of thermometers that had previously only been sold wholesale to hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. Shelly and April saw an opportunity to market directly to consumers and took it one step further by identifying a need for a more eco-friendly solution than the disposable thermometers currently available on the market. With the support of their WBENC contacts, the duo took a chance on launching the new start-up nationally and landed Walmart.com as their first retail channel!

Quote from CEO on being a Women Owned business

Being a part of WBENC has allowed us to have the contacts and relationships we needed to launch Temp-N-Toss to the retail market nationally. From our supplier diversity contacts to other WBEs promoting our product within their own network, it has truly been women believing in women that brought us here today!
