The BiliChek noninvasive, transcutaneous bilirubin measurement system allows you to assess the risk of hyperbilirubinemia in newborns and to measure total bilirubin levels easier than ever before. Using light instead of a needle, BiliChek measures bilirubin levels in your newborn nursery, the mothers'room, the NICU, or right in your office. There is no heel stick, no lab test and no waiting for results - just a simple, gentle touch.
Resting lightly on the baby's head or sternum, only a disposable plastic tip touches the baby, reducing the risk of infection or possible cross contamination. For the user, a new ergonomic design is lighter and provides greater dexterty. The thouch sensitivity has been reduced, which equates te faster testing, increased productivity and rapidclinical adoption. Even a first-time user will be able to take high-quality measurements.
Clinically proven, BiliChek eliminates the costs and time associated with blood draws and laboratory services. There is less risk of infection, less trauma, and no pain while enabling a faster time to discharge or a decision toward treatment.
