NBM-200 - hemoglobin device
OrSense's non-invasive Hb measurement has many advantages including the prevention of pain and potential transmission of infectious diseases, a reduced need for trained personnel, short measurement time, and the absence of bio-hazardous waste. It offers a unique, breakthrough, non-invasive solution for accurate and quick Hb measurements. The portable, wireless device operates via rechargeable batteries using a ring-shaped sensor that is fitted on the donor's finger and applies pressure, temporarily occluding local blood flow. During the occlusion, optical elements in the sensor perform a sensitive measurement of the light transmitted through the finger. This technology, called SpectOLight™, provides a quick, accurate and painless measurement of the donor's blood constituents, while greatly improving donors' comfort, eliminating infection risk, and providing the medical staff with accurate readings and immediate results. The device has received CE and CDN approvals. It exhibits comparable accuracy to invasive point-of-care solutions while also demonstrating a strong safety profile, ease of use and substantial cost reduction.
"After evaluating OrSense's novel technology we found that it is comparable, or even better, to other existing methods. OrSense's non-invasive system has many benefits that are highly appreciated by blood donors," said Miloš Bohoněk, Ph.D., Head of Department of Hematology, Biochemistry and Blood Transfusion, Central Military Hospital, Prague, Czech Republic.
