Company Summary

To reduce the incidence of neonatal mortality and morbidity, Noninvasix is developing a patient monitor to directly, accurately, and noninvasively measure brain oxygenation in preterm and low birth weight babies in the NICU. Using optoacoustics, Noninvasix’s system pulses laser light into the brain to directly measure the amount of oxygen the baby is receiving in real time.
