Albumin-to-Creatinine Ratio (ACR) Urine TestingWant to start testing in your office or clinic? Here's how:

Whether you are a physician in an office or a laboratorian in a central lab, screening
for kidney disease is at your fingertips.

Siemens CLINITEK® Microalbumin 2 Reagent Strips detect albumin and creatinine levels in urine, providing an albumin-to-creatinine ratio and allowing treatment to begin sooner.

  • Detect kidney disease at the earliest stages—albumin sensitivity as low as 10 mg/L
  • Ratios utilizing creatinine account for the variability of albumin results due to urine concentration
  • Provide results in one minute
  • Reduce transcription errors and wait time—when used in combination with CLINITEK Status® family of analyzers, results can be electronically managed or printed  


Strategic Alliance

Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics and the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) have formed a strategic alliance focusing on education, awareness, and screening for kidney disease in high-risk individuals. This important collaboration leverages the latest testing recommendations from the NKF to improve detection among those at risk for kidney disease.

These new recommendations call on healthcare professionals to screen patients in high-risk groups by adding simple urine albumin tests to their patients' annual physical exams. Risk factors include:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Age 60 or older - New!
  • Family history of CKD, diabetes or hypertension
  • U.S. ethnic minority
  • History of acute kidney injury
