Picterus® Jaundice Pro is a jaundice screening device approved for clinical use by healthcare professionals and caregivers. It allows you to screen your newborn quickly and reliably wherever you are. The results should always be reviewed by your midwife or doctor, who can determine if further evaluation is necessary.
This is how it works
Picterus® Calibration Card
The colour calibration card adjusts for lighting conditions and enhances smartphone camera performance.
Picterus® Jaundice Pro
The app ensures correct camera distance, positioning and quality and automatically takes six photos when aligned with the calibration card.
Each picture is then analysed using our patented calculation model, which presents the bilirubin measurement within just a few seconds.
How yellow is
Jaundice is often characterized by a yellowing of the skin and eyes. But it is difficult to determine when the skin turns too yellow by eye. By the time symptoms of jaundice are clearly visible to the naked eye, irreversible damage might already have occurred.
This is why Picterus® Jaundice Pro can offer a safer screening than a visual inspection, whether used in hospitals or at home.
