NIOX MINO® is the first point-of-care medical device for measuring fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO), thus offering personalized asthma management. It enables healthcare providers to obtain an accurate, quantitative measure of airway inflammation to more effectively diagnose and manage asthma. Read the full Intended Use statement in the NIOX MINO® User Manual for more information on the use in patients with asthma.

With NIOX MINO®, clinicians may1

  • Obtain an objective measurement of airway inflammation
  • Identify patients who will be steroid responsive
  • Predict the onset of asthma symptoms and help prevent loss of asthma control
  • Assess inflammation guiding clinicians to adjust or discontinue anti-inflammatory medication as needed

Pinpoint accuracy at the point of care

NIOX MINO® brings accurate FeNO measurement to you, and enabling customized asthma management for your patients with an, easy-to-use device.

NIOX MINO® offers

  • Quality assured FeNO values
  • Individualized data management for the practice and the patient
  • The only calibration and maintenance free FeNO device
