Knowledge Hub

NOVARUM™ Dx has created the only end-to-end mobile test reader system currently available in the marketplace.

The Reader works like an app – however the software is customised to create a reading and reporting system specific to your needs.


There's no new kit to buy, simply use your own smartphone to obtain the data. Existing smartphones are tuned into the Novarum™ Reader using Novarum™’s patented image processing technology

Results can be shared instantly and made accessible online or through existing data management platforms

Image quality is assessed before capture, so you don't waste time storing and transmitting sub-standard images.


By using The Novarum™ Reader at home, patients with chronic conditions no longer have to wait weeks or months between tests. Objective information can be relayed to health professionals at optimum intervals, and treatment adjusted and administered as often as necessary.
