Bilistick® System

Features:

  • Portable  & Usable
  • Minimally Invasive
  • Immediate results
  • Wide Range of PCV
  • Neonatal Care

The Bilistick® System is a point of care bilirubin assay able to provide early diagnosis of hyperbilirubinemia by measuring total serum bilirubin concentration.

It is composed of the Bilistick® Reader, a portable rechargeable battery reflectance reader, Bilistick® Test Strips with a cell-plasma separator cassette; and Bilistick® Sample Transfer Pipettes, used for loading the appropriate volume of blood in the test strip.

The test requires the collection of a small blood sample directly from a heel stick or a test tube, by using a Sample Transfer Pipette, and its application on a Test Strip once it was already inserted in the reader.

The Bilistick® System is a point of care bilirubin assay, therefore able to provide an early diagnosis of hyperbilirubinemia. Because it uses the method, measuring total serum bilirubin concentration.

It is composed of the Bilistick® Reader, a portable rechargeable battery reflectance reader, Bilistick® Test Strips with a cell-plasma separator cassette, lastly Bilistick® Sample Transfer Pipettes, used for loading the appropriate volume of blood in the test strip.

The test requires the collection of a small blood sample directly from a heel stick or a test tube, by using a Sample Transfer Pipette, and its application on a Test Strip once it was already inserted in the reader.

The Bilistick® System has been extensively validating both in Western Countries as well as in Low and Middle-Income Countries. Moreover covering different environments and conditions in which it can be used around the world. By comparing Bilistick® bilirubin results with classic methodologies routinely used in high-quality laboratories of hospitals, in conclusion, it has been demonstrated an excellent correlation of bilirubin results. Therefore several studies support the use of the Bilistick® System for routine Total Serum Bilirubin screening. It may facilitate early identification of newborns requiring phototherapy treatment thus contributing to a substantial reduction of the prevalence of ABE/kernicterus in LMICs.
