The European Respiratory Society (ERS) has listed Inofab Health as one of the companies implementing the Quanjer GLI-2012 equation to their software.
Prior to the Quanjer GLI-2012 equation, equations used to determine reference values were either based on a specific age group or were insufficient mathematically, which made them inclusive for accurate results. This caused trouble when understanding and indicating statistical differences between measured and reference values. Therefore, in 2012, the Global Lung Initiative (GLI) established the Quanjer GLI-2012 equation, aiming to eliminate these inconveniences. With respect to large, representative, and reference populations, the new standard equation, Quanjer GLI-2012, was created to define reference & threshold values, and a z-score for any given pulmonary function test (PFT).
The Quanjer GLI-2012 equation is now used to improve the accuracy of spirometry data interpretation as well as characterizing normal lung growth & decline. With our Inofab Health technologies, we provide spirometry tests like no other with remarkable accuracy!
