BiliChek

Noninvasive Bilirubin Assessment Tool

No heel stick, no lab test and no waiting for results

The BiliChek noninvasive, transcutaneous bilirubinometer assesses the risk of hyperbilirubinemia (newborn baby jaundice) in newborns and allows you to measure total serum bilirubin levels easier than ever before. Using light instead of a needle, BiliChek measures bilirubin levels in your newborn nursery, the mother’s room, the NICU, or right in the pediatrician's office.

 

Clinically proven, the BiliChek bilirubinometer virtually eliminates the costs and time associated with blood draws and laboratory services. There is less risk of infection, less trauma, and no pain while allowing a fast time to discharge or a decision toward treatment.
