OrSense, a developer of non-invasive monitoring systems, has introduced a new portable, wireless Glasswing haemoglobin (Hb) measurement system to monitor anaemic conditions, detect haemorrhages and screen pre-donation samples.

The Glasswing system, which provides a non-invasive solution for continuous and spot Hb measurements, can be used in various clinical environments, including perioperative and critical care, emergency medicine, blood donation facilities, women's health, primary care physician's office and homecare.

The system can also be used for real-time communication with electronic medical records in the hospital or blood donation centres, on-line storage and download of data, as well as with other digital data devices and printers.

Lior D. Ma'ayan, OrSense CEO, said the company's non-invasive solution improves anaemia screening and monitoring by eliminating pain, reducing infection risk and enabling a simple and faster diagnosis.

"Haemoglobin measurements obtained by our system in multiple applications, showed accurate performance compared with the gold standard invasive reference values," Ma'ayan added.

"Our non-invasive system was found to be environmentally friendly, safe, fast and easy to use by the operating staff, and is already in use in multiple blood donation centres and blood banks around the world, improving donor and patient safety and care."
