Sciteck’s solution to the antiquated method of dipstick urinalysis is a paradigm shift in how we think about the diagnostic value of urine.
For some historical context, the first urinalysis was the beginning of laboratory medicine. References to the study of urine can be found in the pre-civilized drawings of cavemen and in Egyptian hieroglyphics such as the Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus, The earl physicians lacked the sophisticated testing mechanisms now available, they were able to obtain basic diagnostic information. The evolution of urinalysis continues from ancient times to the dry chemistry methods (dipsticks) of yesterday to the automated liquid urinalysis system of today that can provide clinically significant values while saving time and money.
AutoUA® quantitatively measures 12 analytes in patient urine, providing powerful diagnostic information regarding risk conditions such as:
- Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).
- Kidney Infection.
- Bladder and Kidney Stone.
- Enlarged Prostate.
- Viral Infection.
- Sepsis and other systemic infections.
These are just some of the examples of why the AutoUA® system is the next step in the evolution of urinalysis!
