With over 36 million FeNO tests performed worldwide,
NIOX® technology helps healthcare professionals to accurately
measure airway inflammation.1
Using FeNO technology, NIOX VERO has a reputation worldwide as the gold standard in FeNO testing.3,4 You can enquire about NIOX VERO and get in touch with our dedicated NIOX partners via our website.
Whilst airway inflammation is known to be the major underlying characteristic of asthma, there are few methods which directly measure this. Evaluating airway inflammation using sputum eosinophils or airway biopsy can be expensive, invasive, time-consuming, and is often not readily available. FeNO testing provides a fast and accurate method to support diagnosis and management of asthma.
The majority of patients with asthma have Type 2/eosinophilic driven airway inflammation.6 The associated higher levels of nitric oxide (NO) in their exhaled breath can be simply measured to support optimal management of the condition7
