BILITEST - device for objective evaluation of hyperbilirubinemia level in newborns using non-invasive transcutaneous method.
Commonly in newborns bilirubin determination is performed on a forehead near nose or on the upper part of the breast. Only a slight touch of a mobile measuring head to a baby's derma is needed for measuring. The result is given in international units for transcutaneous bilirubin index (TBI). This index has a high correlation degree with plasma bilirubin concentration (0,92).
