Siemens Clinitek Status+ Analyzer - For Fast Urinalysis Testing

by Jeremy Linder Lab Equipment Supplier
Siemens Clinitek Status+ is an easy-to-use urine analyzer that allows for routine testing, detection of early kidney disease and hCG pregnancy testing.  



Urinalysis includes a set of screening tests that provide a general overview of a person's health. Accurate urine testing plays an important role in detecting different conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney disease, liver dysfunctions, carbohydrate metabolism and acid-base balance. With the increase in demand for urine testing, clinical laboratories are automating their urine testing processes. Popular manufacturers of medical lab equipment like Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics offer quality urinalysis analyzers that produce accurate and reliable test results at the point-of-care. The new CLINITEK Status®+ Analyzer is the most widely used urinalysis analyzer worldwide. This easy-to-use, automated device offers a comprehensive point-of-care urinalysis menu for routine testing, detection of early kidney disease and hCG pregnancy testing. It ensures consistent results interpretation with automatic timing and reading of every urine specimen. 

Advanced Features

The CLINITEK Status®+ analyzer provides automated reading of the Multistix® family of urinalysis tests such as Leukocyte, Nitrite, Protein, Blood, Glucose, Ketone, Bilirubin, Urobilinogen, pH, Specific Gravity, Creatinine, Protein-to-Creatinine Ratio, hCG pregnancy test, Albumin and Albumin-to-Creatinine Ratio (ACR). Albumin-to-creatinine ratio can be automatically calculated with CLINITEK Microalbumin 2 and 9 strips for early detection of kidney disease in patients with diabetes.

The urine analyzer features Auto-Checks which automatically check each test strip for humidity exposure, common sample interferences, and strip identification for Siemens test strips. The testing process is simple: insert a dipped urinalysis strip or a Clinitest cassette into the analyzer and results will be reported in about 1 minute. 

Featuring a simple, intuitive touch screen operation, the urinalysis analyzer loads the test and automatically times and reads every specimen.  The other important features of the device include - 

  • Automatic printed report – no manual transcription needed
  • Barcode reading capability to eliminate manual tasks
  • Removes subjectivity of visually read results 
  • A touch-screen that displays operation instructions
  • Electrical rating - 100V - 240V AC, 50-60 Hz (with in-line lead)
  • Battery operation - 6 AA batteries, non-rechargeable
  • Temperature range - 18 to 30ºC (64 to 86ºF)
  • Calibration - Automatic, self-calibrating
  • Humidity exposure tested on every strip with leukocyte pad
  • Printed record that avoid transcription errors
  • Enhanced operator oversight and lock-out capabilities
  • Increased storage of 950 patient test results and 700 operator IDs
  • QC lock-out that ensures compliance 

The CLINITEK Status+ allows for automatic detection of strips that may have been affected by excess humidity and makes a printed note of any potentially compromised result.  This prevents potentially erroneous results from being reported. 

Ensure Purchase from a Reliable Lab Equipment Store

Purchase of the Siemens CLINITEK Status®+ Analyzer from a reliable medical laboratory equipment store would ensure reasonable pricing. Such dealers also provide training and maintenance support.
