Clinic thermometers are, probably, the most used measurement instrument in the medical facilities (hospitals, cilinics, etc.) all around the world. A good part of the assessment the physician does on the patient's health status will depend on the result of such a measurement. In this work, a system to assess the quality of non-contact clinic thermometers is developed and presented; the accuracy of the system is designed to be a useful tool in the phase of the instrument verification and as a base for a future automated calibration facilities.
