NIOX VERO is one of the most used FeNO testing devices worldwide.1
Asthma’s complexity and heterogeneity means that it’s not always easy to feel confident in diagnosis and management.2 With the prevalence of asthma increasing, poorly controlled asthma can have long term consequences for patients.3,4,5
FeNO testing is now recommended for asthma care in guidelines across the globe.6,7 Having an accurate FeNO testing device is essential in correctly diagnosing and managing asthma. FeNO values are well established and can help to optimise your treatment decision. The current ATS FeNO thresholds7 were derived from trials where NIOX technology was the most widely used device.8 Studies show that results from other FeNO testing devices are not comparable with NIOX and this suggests that NIOX may offer a more reliable reading when managing asthma according to ATS-validated FeNO cut off values.9,10,11,12,13
With unique sensor technology and self-calibration methods, the NIOX VERO is a device that can be trusted
The accuracy of NIOX VERO® is maintained through unique technology that eliminates the impact of environmental NO irrespective of the surroundings and environment.
Once the test have been completed, it takes approximately 1 minute to produce the accurate FeNO result for your patient.
NIOX VERO can also be used to perform nNO tests to help identify and diagnose Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) in patients.
NIOX VERO® automatically performs self-checks when the device is switched on. All sensors are individually calibrated during manufacturing to ensure accuracy throughout their stated lifetime without any need to re-calibrate.
Due to variations in sensor technology, other FeNO devices are not directly comparable with NIOX.9,10,11,12,13
NIOX VERO comes from Circassia, the world leader in FeNO testing. Circassia has been at the forefront of FeNO testing and innovation for 20 years.
NIOX VERO is easy to use for Healthcare Professionals and patients alike. A choice of three engaging animations along with the optional inclusion of the NIOX Patient and Panel Apps provide the flexibility to tailor the experience as needed. The NIOX VERO device is lightweight and portable allowing easy movement within the clinical setting.
After FeNO measurement, clinicians modified their treatment plan in 31% of cases of which 90% involved changes to ICS medications.2 Studies have also shown up to a 50% reduction in exacerbations where NIOX has been used to regularly test asthma patients in a clinical setting15,16
