The Bilistick® System is a portable, low cost POC bilirubin assay able to provide Total Bilirubin concentration from a tiny drop of blood

Problem

Neonatal jaundice is a common condition in infants caused by high levels of bilirubin in the blood. If sustained for a long time, they can lead to Kernicterus and cause irreversible neurological damages.

Affected Areas

In Africa, Southeast Asia and South America, there are many obstacles to achieve proper neonatal care management, including limited availability of diagnosis and care equipment. In Europe and Anglo-Saxon countries, the management of the neonatal jaundice is very good.

Need

To reduce Kernicterus cases in the world, it is necessary to intervene at several levels to promote recognition of neonatal jaundice as a factor of socio-cultural importance, by promoting the appropriate training of health personnel and the implementation of effective instrumentation.

Solution

The International Guidelines recommend early detection of jaundice by measuring bilirubin levels within the first 2 weeks of childbirth. The Bilistick® system is a powerful tool able to significantly contribute to eradicate Kernicterus by immediate diagnosis of neonatal jaundice.

What is Bilistick®
and how it works

Bilistick® is the diagnostic tool developed by Bilimetrix to allow a simple measurement of Total Bilirubin concentration in whole blood samples to assess the severity of neonatal jaundice. The test require just insert the Bilistick® Test Strip into the reader and load a small drop of blood on it. The Bilistick® System thus allows the measurement of Total Bilirubin concentration in less than 2 minutes with an accuracy comparable to traditional laboratory methods.
