Jaundice Pro

Picterus® Jaundice Pro is a new CE-marked class IIa medical device that utilises a smartphone app and a colour calibration card to screen for neonatal jaundice. Picterus® Calibration Card is a class I medical device and an accessory to the Picterus® Jaundice Pro app. The patented technology is based on colour analysis of images to estimate the bilirubin levels in newborns, providing a non-invasive and convenient way to monitor and manage the condition.

medical device

Optimised for accuracy and ease of use, Picterus® Jaundice Pro is well-suited for both hospital and home settings. It is designed for healthcare professionals and caregivers alike since bilirubin levels typically peak 3-5 days after birth, potentially outside the immediate postnatal care period.

Picterus® Jaundice Pro allows a caregiver to conduct multiple home screenings of their newborn and then contact a midwife or doctor to reconcile the results. Providing caregivers with a user-friendly jaundice screening tool can save valuable time while also reducing the strain on healthcare resources.
