Illuminating your path to
better health

Ellume delivers innovative diagnostic healthcare solutions enabling people to take increased control of their health and wellbeing.

Influenza (Flu) is a common, serious viral infection.

Influenza infects 5-15% of the world's population annually, with 3-5 million severe cases and 250,000 to 500,000 deaths (WHO).

5 reasons why you need to know if you have flu

Flu is treatable within 2 days (48 hours) of infection with medicines like Tamiflu and Relenza. Beyond 2 days these medicines are of little or no benefit.
If you have flu, you should be extra careful to protect people around you from infection (you’re infectious).
Knowing you have flu has been shown to reduce unnecessary treatments (like antibiotics) and expensive tests (such as xrays and blood tests).
If you get sicker and need to see a doctor or go to hospital, it is important for them to know you have flu – they can look after you (and patients around you) better.
If you don’t have flu, it is important to consider other illnesses which can make you feel like you have flu. Sometimes these can be serious.

It really is “Better to Know”

Ellume delivers global healthcare solutions that enable people to live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives.

At Ellume our mission is to improve the accessibility, accuracy and efficiency of global healthcare. Through the creation of simple, elegant diagnostic tools we empower people to take increased control of their health and wellbeing.

Innovation at Ellume takes cutting edge diagnostic technology out of the laboratory and makes it work for everyone.

At the clinic, at home, at work – anywhere. Simple, safe and ultra-sensitive.

This is made possible by our pioneering detection technology which puts nanotechnology in the palm of your hand. We call it the Ellume Sensing Platform (ESP) and it is the next generation of immunoassay technology. Learn more…

But ultra-sensitive is of little value unless it is also ultra-usable. So all our innovations are driven by Humanised Design - simple enough for anyone to use, even if they don’t feel at their best.

Ellume has pioneered a
world first in

The Respirio Flu Test will be the world’s first non-invasive, ultra-simple test for the detection of Influenza in the clinic and in the home.
It will be a single use device that uses our proprietary ‘Ellume Sensing Platform’ (ESP), making it sensitive yet affordable. If made early, a flu diagnosis is the first step towards appropriate treatment and better health outcomes. The Respirio Flu Test is undergoing clinical trials and will be available as soon as regulatory authorities have approved its use.
