Siemens Urinalysis Analyzers for Rapid and Accurate Urine Testing

by Jeremy Linder Lab Equipment Supplier
Siemens urinalysis analyzers come with advanced features to meet the demands for higher productivity, improved quality, and flexibility.

Urinalysis is one of the most commonly performed tests in clinical and research laboratories. Modern clinical labs depend on automated urinalysis analyzers to perform testing and detect a wide range of disorders such as urinary tract infections, kidney disease, carbohydrate metabolism, bladder cancer, hypertension and diabetes. Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics offers quality analyzer models that deliver efficient and reliable test results at the point of care. Quality models come with a urine strip reader, a type of reflectance photometer that can process several hundred strips an hour. These point-of-care analyzers are used to detect and quantify a number of analytes like glucose, bilirubin, ketones, blood, pH, protein, urobilinogen, nitrite and leucocytes. 

Urinalysis Analyzers – Top Models 

Siemens Clinitek Advantus – Ideal for use in medium to high throughput laboratory settings, this analyzer enables automated reading of the Multistix® family of urinalysis test strips. It has the throughput capacity of 7 seconds/sample, performing up to 500 tests per hour. It provides fast, accurate and reliable test results. This urinalysis analyzer provides automated reading for – 

* pH

* Protein

* Specific Gravity

* Urobilinogen

* Protein-to-Creatinine

* Bilirubin

* Blood

* Creatinine

* Glucose

* Ketone

* Leukocyte

* Nitrite

Featuring an easy-to-use color touch screen, this analyzer has an ability to consolidate microscopy results onto one patient record. High quality sample results are ensured since every strip is checked for humidity exposure to prevent reporting of false results. 

Siemens Clinitek Status + - This device features “Auto-Checks” that automatically check each tests strip for:

* Identification of strip type

* Humidity exposure tested on every strip with leukocyte pad

* Common sample-interference check, available depending upon strip type

The analyzer ensures consistent results interpretation with automatic timing and reading of every urine specimen. It offers a comprehensive point-of-care urinalysis menu for routine testing, detection of early kidney disease and hCG pregnancy testing. The touch screen displays instructions and prompts the user through operation. Other features include - 

* Enhances confidence in clinical decisions with Auto-Checks performed on every test

* Automatic printed report – no manual transcription needed

* Barcode reading capability to eliminate manual tasks

* Easy to use and convenient

* Fast results

Clinitek 500 – This urine chemistry analyzer delivers exceptional performance, and no warm-up and calibration are required. It comes with added features such as immediate start-up mode, two sieve functions, flexible reporting options, non-pacing system, large display with touch-sensitive action and replaceable program card. The device uses Multistix 10 SG Reagent Strips for urinalysis and provides testing for multiple chemistries such as glucose, ketone, bilirubin, occult blood, urobilinogen, protein, leukocyte, nitrite, pH, and blood. It has an aggregate throughput of 7 seconds per sample, and a memory capacity of 200 control results for regulatory documentation and 500 patient results for convenient data retrieval. 

Purchase from a Reliable Laboratory Equipment Dealer

Siemens urinalysis analyzers are available in online laboratory equipment stores. Purchase from a reliable dealer would ensure competitive pricing. Such dealers would also provide superior post-sales services including training and maintenance support.
