The piCObaby™ Smokerlyzer® is a breath carbon monoxide monitor, specifically designed for use with pregnant smokers. Intended for multi-patient use by healthcare professionals in smoking cessation programmes and research, the familiar traffic light system provides visual motivation to the mum-to-be to quit smoking whilst also providing the feotal reading both in ppm and %FCOHb.
The piCObaby™ offers an unprecedented view of the internal effects of smoking by using the traffic light results system for both the mum-to-be and the baby.
The piCObaby™ CO monitor is a valuable tool for pregnant smokers to visualise the effects that smoking is having on them and their child.

Years of research and vigorous testing ensures our Bedfont® products and consumables are not only safe for consumer use, but compliant with Medical Device Regulations. Use of counterfeit or non-Bedfont® approved accessories and consumables may result in loss of performance and/or damage to your device. This risk of incorrect results could adversely affect patient care. We also remind you that counterfeit and/or non-Bedfont® accessories and consumables do not possess the quality and reliability of the original manufacturer products, nor have they undergone the Toxicology tests to ensure they are fit to be used orally, and therefore their safety and infection control efficacy cannot be guaranteed.
SteriBreath™ mouthpieces for use with Bedfont® breath analysis monitors, combining ease of use with optimum infection control.
The D-piece™ incorporates a one-way valve to prevent air being drawn back from the monitor. The mouthpiece itself has a specifically integrated infection control filter which removes and traps >99% of airborne bacteria and >96% of viruses and any moisture from the patient’s breath1. The D-piece™ should be changed every four weeks or more often if visibly soiled. An automatic reminder will appear on the screen every 28 days.
The OneBreath™ mouthpiece is a single-use bacterial filter mouthpiece and can be attached directly to the monitor to take a breath sample. The OneBreath™ incorporates a one-way valve and an infection control filter, which are proven to remove and trap >99.9% of airborne bacteria1.
Smoking in Pregnancy is a software specifically designed to help mums-to-be quit smoking. Compatible with the Micro+™ and piCObaby™ Smokerlyzer®. Once the monitor is connected to the computer, it uses a traffic-light colour system and shows the live CO reading of the expectant mother as well as the %FCOHb conversion. As seen on BBC’s Misbehaving Mums, the Smoking in Pregnancy software is a valuable tool to help expectant mothers quit smoking.
