Rapid Pass/Refer

With a single start selection, you may run AABR or OAE tests. The Novus will evaluate probe stability and automatically begin the testing routine. Powerful response detection algorithms for OAE and ABR ensure the Novus will quickly assign a pass or refer result.

    Easy to Use

    A newborn screening device that is too complicated can be inefficient and slow down training and workflow. The Novus has a straight-forward and logical interface that hospital screeners can learn quickly and with confidence.


Test both ears simultaneously

The Novus gives you the ability to test both ears at the same time with a sophisticated ABR algorithm, saving time. The device differentiates ears by using alternative simulation rates.

Key Features

  • 1.  Combined AABR and OAE into one

    The Novus combines AABR and OAE capabilities into one. Reduce training time and screen infants in well-baby and NICU nurseries with one device.

  • 2.  CE-Chirp Stimuli for ABR

    CE-Chirp ABR response is twice as large as traditional click stimulus, making faster pass results.

  • 3.  Quick Test Option

    Perform a test without needing to enter demographic information. Ideal when training new staff. 

  • 4.  Touch Screen Display

    Screening staff feels an instant comfort with the intuitive touch screen display and can navigate seamlessly through the testing screens.

  • 5.  Wireless Charging

    A wireless charging dock is available with the Novus. Screening tests can be completed any time when the battery is low and is placed in the dock.

  • 6. Automated Pass/Refer Algorithms

    No interpretation required. Save time with automatic results obtained as soon as pass/refer criteria are met. Optimized for the infant ear.





The Novus uses fast rate automated auditory brainstem response (AABR) technology with a powerful response detection algorithm.



Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emissions (DPOAE) and Transient Evoked Otoacoustic Emission (TEOAE) protocols provide visual feedback to the screener through every step of the screening test.


Resilient Battery

A heavy testing workload is no problem for the Novus. The Novus is capable of performing approximately 50 ABR or 150 OAE screens on a single charge. When the battery is low, testing may continue while the Novus is stationed in the cradle.



HearSIM software is a dynamic tool that has everything you need to manage your newborn hearing screening program. Store, view, and print test results. Export patient and testing information. Customize the Novus settings.
