OrSense, a manufacturer of non-intrusive sensing devices for blood parameter measurements, has launched a non-intrusive hemoglobin (Hb) calibration device called the NBM200 for use in hemorrhage identification and anemia testing at the Barcelona-based Global Forum of Maternal and Infant Health in Spain.
OrSense has proved that the Hb counts achieved by the new non-invasive NBM200 provided precise results in comparison with the invasive point of care (POC) tools.
Anemia is the major cause of postnatal hemorrhage leading to maternal deaths and also resulting in reduced birth weights in the newborns.
OrSense has devised and marketed a non-intrusive, mobile point of care (POC) measuring device for monitoring spot and the constant hemoglobin as well as various other blood constituents. The improved device furnishes precise, secure, speedy, operation and convenient solution for testing and measurement of anemia. The non-invasive tool avoids the complicated biochemical blood examinations and finger prickings, protects from various infections and excludes the necessity of bio-hazardous substances required for such tests.
By employing this method prior examination of the chances of postnatal hemorrhage as well as enhanced post delivery management of the blood can be attained. It also strengthens maternal health status by furnishing the required web-based data, avoids the safety hazards and lowers the cost of protection. The device is CE and CDN authorized and has been proposed for the FDA 510(k) approval. The working of the device is based on the company’s patented Occlusion Spectroscopy technology, which employs a non-intrusive optical calibration base coupled with a ring-structured pneumatic sensor that can be positioned on the fingers.
