Efficient Urinalysis Analyzers for Faster Screening and Therapeutic Decision Making

by Jeremy Linder Lab Equipment Supplier
Urinalysis is one of the most commonly performed clinical lab tests and using efficient urinalysis analyzers will ensure accurate results in rapid turnaround time.



A urinalysis analyzer is a urine screening tool that provides crucial information about the status of carbohydrate metabolism, kidney function and liver function, and acid-base balance. Urinalysis helps detect different metabolic, kidney disorders, and urinary tract infection. It is widely used in drug testing in sports and in the workplace.  Using efficient urinalysis analyzers is critical to ensure accurate results in rapid turnaround time. Siemens Healthineers offers urinalysis systems featuring innovative, proven technology that allow healthcare providers to get a broad clinical insight into their patients’ health. Let’s take a look at various models of urinalysis analyzers available in leading laboratory equipment stores: 

  • Siemens/Bayer Clinitek Status - This compact analyzer provides simple, accurate results, enhancing standards of urinalysis. It can provide on the spot semi-quantitative results in 1 minute. This unit can store up to 200 patient names and 200 test results. Clinitek Microalbumin allows detection of kidney disease before it becomes irreversible.
  • Siemens/Bayer Clinitek Atlas - This advanced system provides high-volume urine testing for the most frequently ordered chemistries. It offers a throughput of one sample every 16 seconds. It can perform a maximum of 490 tests on-board. This analyzer includes labor-saving automation, carousel sample handler, rack sample handler, automatic bar-code sample identification etc.
  • Siemens Clinitek 50 - This urine chemistry analyzer provides reliable urine chemistry results for urobilinogen, protein, leucocytes, ketone, ph, nitrite, blood, bilirubin, glucose, and specific gravity. It can test up to 60 samples per hour and provides consistent results within 5 minutes. It uses Multistix 10 SG Reagent Strips for performing traditional urinalysis. It also performs Multistix PRO and Clinitek micro albumin/creatinine analyses. 
  • Siemens Clinitek Advantus  -  This system provides consistent and reliable results with one-touch switching between test strip configurations. It offers a throughput of 7 seconds/sample, up to 500 tests per hour. It comes with easy-to-use color touch screen. It has the ability to consolidate microscopy results onto one patient record. It allows convenient data retrieval for up to 500 patients by patient ID and 200 control results.
  • Clinitek Status+  - This new urine analyzer automatically checks each test strip for humidity exposure, common sample interferences and strip identification for Siemens test strips. It offers a comprehensive point-of-care urinalysis menu for routine testing, detection of early kidney disease and hCG pregnancy testing.  It has simple, intuitive touch screen operation.  It measures albumin-to-creatinine ratios to detect early kidney disease in confirmed diabetic patients.  It also measures protein-to-creatinine ratios to detect early kidney disease in high-risk patients. It provides accurate results in about 1 minute and does not require manual transcription.  
  • Clinitek 500  - This device comes with added capabilities and key features, including immediate start-up mode, two sieve functions, flexible reporting options, nonpacing system, large display with touch-sensitive action, replaceable program card, etc. It features a throughput of 7 seconds per sample and has a memory capacity of 200 control results for regulatory documentation and 500 patient results for convenient data retrieval. 

When it comes to buying a urinalysis analyzer, the best option is to shop online. Established laboratory equipment dealers offer these reliable urinalysis systems refurbished and at great prices. Partnering with a reliable dealer would also ensure timely maintenance support.
