The BILITEST is a portable fully automated bichromatic photometer designed for noninvasive assessment of the degree of hyperbilirubinemia in the newborn infants by measuring of yellowness of sub-cutaneous tissues.
The main purpose of BILITEST Hyperbiliribinemia Analyzer is to screen newborn infants for hyperbilirubinemia, including:
• evaluation of the degree of jaundice and monitoring of its dynamics;
• identification of newborn with a high degree of jaundice requiring the measurement of serum bilirubin
The utilization of BILITEST allows reducing the number of newborns subjected to blood collection for laboratory investigations.
