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.

The Situation Today

Today, to assess bilirubin levels a blood test is required. This procedure is really hard on a baby’s body. Not to mention the high personnel costs it requires, the long waits necessary to get laboratory results and the need for the family to come back and forth from the hospital.

Need

To reduce the discomfort in patients, it is necessary to change the way this test is performed with the introduction of non-invasive instrumentation that can guarantee reliable results as quickly as possible with a POC technology.

Solution

Our device has been designed with that scope in mind. The Bilistick® system is a powerful tool that can make an immediate diagnosis with the accuracy of laboratory testing and the comforts of transcutaneous bilirubinometers.

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. This innovative device enables mecial staff to assess the severity of neonatal jaundice with a quick and minimally invasive test. You just need to insert the Bilistick® Test Strip into the reader and load a small drop of blood on it. The Bilistick® System allows the measurement of Total Bilirubin concentration in less than 2 minutes with an accuracy comparable to traditional laboratory methods.
