About Tempagenix

Tempagenix was founded by two friends and colleagues, Shelly Heller and April Pollock, when they saw a need for a low cost, disposable and sustainable forehead thermometer for the consumer market. With the support of their WBENC contacts, the duo took a chance on launching the new start-up in 2016 and is now distributed at national retailers.

Tempagenix received the Dayton Business Journal 2021 Woman-Owned Business of the Year award, a Commendation from the State of Ohio in 2022, the Top Innovative Product Award from The Kroger Corporation in 2019, and the Eastway Corporation Community Partner Award in 2020. Our product is assembled through Meaningful Employment by Adults with Developmental Disabilities and People in Recovery.

Temp-N-Toss is manufactured and warehoused in Dayton, OH with 100% of items sourced from the U.S. The strips use a proven Liquid Crystal technology from our manufacturer that has traditionally been sold in bulk to hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. Our manufacturing facility is ISO 9001:2008 certified and manufactured to FDA standards. Temp-N-Toss is registered as a Class II Medical Device and uses a medical-grade adhesive. Design patent pending.
