Is the electronic pen type thermometer as accurate as a mercury one?

A MEDISANA electronic thermometer is even more accurate than a mercury thermometer. 

Reading off the correct temperature on an electronic thermometer is much easier and more precise than on a mercury type thermometer. 

Furthermore, the mercury thermometers don't have a beeper or anything else to indicate when the measurement is completed.

Please distinguish between the technical and clinical accuracy. The technical accuracy is in the specified measuring range ±0.1°C. The test is performed in the water bath using a comparison with a highly accurate electronic thermometer. The clinical accuracy is tested on human beings in a clinical evaluation, compared with a calibrated reference thermometer. Based on the above points, the electronic thermometer is more reliable than the mercury thermometer.
