Siemens Analyzers for Reliable Point-of-care Urinalysis Testing

by Jeremy Linder Lab Equipment Supplier
Siemens urinalysis analyzers are an ideal option for automatic urine testing in clinical laboratories and hospitals. 

Purchasing laboratory equipment with innovative features is a valuable investment when it comes to providing quick and accurate results. Clinical laboratories depend on urinalysis analyzers to perform automatic urine testing. Urinalysis (commonly referred to by medical professionals as a “UA”) is a test of urine performed to detect and manage a wide range of disorders such as urinary tract infections, kidney disease, bladder cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and so on. 

The process involves macroscopic examination, chemical analysis, and microscopic urine sediment examination to detect specific abnormalities. Urine analyzers interface with automated strip analyzers to produce comprehensive routine urinalysis reports. The tests can also reveal genetically derived metabolic disorders, substance abuse, exposure to toxins, inadequate or excessive fluid intake and the use of performance-enhancing drugs in professional sports. A new report from Markets and Markets estimates that the global urinalysis market is expected to reach USD 1.91 billion by 2021 from USD 1.32 billion in 2016 at a CAGR of 7.6% from 2016 to 2021.

Leading manufacturers of medical lab equipment have come out with new and innovative automated urinalysis analyzers offering consistent and accurate results in minimal time. Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics offers quality analyzer models that deliver an efficient and reliable test results at the point-of-care. These analyzers are used to detect and quantify a number of analytes including glucose, bilirubin, ketones, specific gravity, blood, pH, protein, urobilinogen, nitrite and leucocytes.
