The answer to this question is determinate on the accuracy of the device. All of the devices you have listed are used in one lab device or another. For best accuracy, many will use a platinum probe (RTD). Many devices will use a thermocouple. More expensive thermistors can give you +/-1 deg C accuracy or better. So, it really depends upon the accuracy requirement.
