Automated test strip and particle analysis in a single urinalysis device
- Automated test strip analysis and fluorescence flow cytometry
- Comprehensive list of parameters
- Works at the push of a button
- Standardised, efficient workflow management and automation
- Up to 150 samples/hour
Our UX-2000 answers a longstanding customer wish for greater convenience and automation in urinalysis. Now, a single device incorporates the two most common testing methods in urinalysis. Dry chemistry test strips, and particle analysis using fluorescence flow cytometry.
At a single push of a button, this bench-top analyser takes on the complete urine screening process. Using criteria that you define in line with your needs. To the highest and which comply to recent regulatory standards. With high clinical utility. And some of the most comprehensive parameters available .
In the UX-2000, we believe we have addressed all your major challenges in urinalysis: cost, speed, quality, networking and standardisation.
To date, lab staff has always had to run two separate tests: test strips and particle analysis. No longer. Now the UX-2000 offers both test strip analysis for three types of test strip, and particle analysis using Sysmex’s world famous fluorescence flow cytometry plus hydrodynamic focusing, now applied in urinalysis.
You can free up significant time for your lab staff to concentrate on other matters. Choose which type of tests you wish to apply. Test for a vast array of parameters and eliminate errors associated with the manual testing process. You will also offer the high-quality standardised testing called for by today’s extensive legislation.
At last: two-in-one urinalysis
Lab users have been calling for it for years, and we have come up with the solution: a single urinalysis analyser that performs both dry chemistry test strip analyses and particle analysis using fluorescence flow cytometry.
You can now define the testing process applicable for each sample – test strip analysis only, sediment analysis only, or both analyses combined. The job is done at the press of a single button. And you can easily adapt the different workflows to your laboratory needs using settings available to any authorised user.
Just push one button and the job is done
Urinalysis used to take up a large amount of lab staff’s precious time – selecting which samples need which; manual test strip testing, reading the results and then entering the results into the database.
No longer. You can now define the testing process for each sample. Then you simply place the samples in racks on the sampler, and press the button. If you want, the device can automatically select a test strip that offers an additional Prot/Crea ratio or one with a microalbumin concentration test. Just place the test strip types of your choice in the dedicated compartments.
Mixing and aspiration are automated with an aspiration volume of just 800µL and defined and automated dilution of 1:4 for sediment analysis and 1:8 for bacterial analysis. Labelling and incubation at optimal temperatures are automatic too. So you know you can count on the results.
Thanks to the high level of standardisation and automation, throughput is quick – up to 150 samples per hour depending on sieve criteria and the sample pool. And importantly – your results are in your database within minutes and you can exclude a possible UTI. Instead of having to wait for hours like you used to.
