Features & Benefits

Enjoy the added capabilities of this urine chemistry analyzer: 

  • Easy-to-use color touchscreen
  • Ability to consolidate microscopy results onto one patient record
  • Increased control with automatic QC prompting and QC lockout capability to ensure compliance
  • A total of three sieve functions – confirmatory and microscopic to flag abnormal results for quick review
  • Convenient data retrieval for up to 500 patients by patient ID, and 200 control results
  • Improved data integrity by automatically identifying and reporting results only from validated Siemens strip types
  • Improved workflow eliminates the need for manually selecting urinalysis strip type
  • Helps ensure quality results since every test strip is checked for humidity exposure to prevent reporting of false results*
  • Aids in results interpretation by adding sample interference notes
