“No-touch” & “Painless” device for non-invasive screening of bilirubin level in new-born baby developed by SNBNCBS

“AJO-Neo” -“No-touch” & “Painless” device for non-invasive screening of bilirubin level in new-born baby developed by Professor Samir K. Pal & his group at S.N. Bose National Centre For Basic Sciences (SNBNCBS), Kolkata, an autonomous research Institute under the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India.

It will help in reduction in testing time of bilirubin level and since it is non-contact and non -invasive so it will be convenient to test bilirubin level of baby without any pain.

Operation of device is based on non-contact and non-invasive spectrometry-based techniques for measurement of neonatal bilirubin level as an alternative of total serum bilirubin (TSB) test without limitations of other available bilirubin meters.

Salient features of Ajo-Neo are:-
1.It is reliable in measuring bilirubin levels in preterm, and term neonates.
2. It can deliver an almost instantaneous report (about 10 seconds) to a concerned doctor, who is sitting 10000 km away from the point of care.


The Technology has been transferred by the National Research Development Corporation (NRDC), an enterprise of DSIR, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India in the presence of Prof. Ashutosh Sharma, Secretary, DST to a Vijayawada based company, M/s Zyna Medtech Private Limited.
