Rapid and Accurate Point-of-Care Test
Pre-eclampsia Risk

What is Lumella®?

How does it work?

Lumella® is a rapid point-of-care (POC) test which predicts the risk of pre-eclampsia. Only requiring a single fingerpick of blood, Lumella can be performed on the ward or in a doctor’s surgery, without needing the blood sample to go the lab. As a POC preeclampsia test, Lumella has a sensitivity of 98.5% and specificity of 92.8%. 1

The test determines the concentration of the Glycosylated Fibronectin (GlyFN) biomarker, which has increased levels during pre-eclampsia. Studies have shown it is a robust biomarker for the prediction of pre-eclampsia as both an immunoassay, POC test, and compared to other biomarkers available 1,2,3.  

A cost and time effective bedside pre-eclampsia test that reduces risk at the earliest stage.

1-2% of pregnancies will develop the life-threatening condition, eclampsia. Early symptoms of pre-eclampsia are often ambiguous for accurate clinical stratification. Less than 40% of patients who develop PE present with both proteinuria and hypertension 4.


Pre-eclampsia progression is unpredictable, and therefore must be diagnosed as soon as possible to be managed safely with timely and appropriate treatment.

The simple 4-step procedure gives a clear 'normal' 'positive' or 'high positive' result within 10 minutes. A high positive result indicates a high risk of delivery within 14 days as well as other complications such as HELPP syndrome.
