Chemistry analysis that integrates into your workflow – anywhere

Lightweight and with a small footprint, the UC-1000 works as a standalone analyser or integrated into your UN-Series solution. Fitting almost anywhere, it is useful in any number of settings: for instance, as a backup for your UC-3500 fully automated system or as a smaller system for processing individual test strip order requests. Different test strips are available with 10 or 12 test pads, the latter including microalbumin and creatinine tests. They can also be used for manual reading – there’s a colour chart on each bottle.

Built with both speed and accuracy in mind, the UC-1000 is convenient to use, completes analysis in less than a minute and can be reloaded with another test strip every eight seconds. The design works to minimise adverse influences on the measurement process and produce consistent results; the device captures and scans images of the test strips, from which the reflectivity analysis is performed.

To complement the in-built benefits of user-friendly software and an easy cleaning procedure, the UC-1000 includes a complete online training so that you can get everyone trained right away – no need to wait for on-site visits. And its integrated certification function helps you fulfil the documentation demands of accreditation.

Find your perfect match

The UC-1000 works equally well as a backup for your UC-3500 fully automated system or a smaller system for processing individual test strip order requests. It can be completely integrated into your UN-Series solution or used as a stand-alone system, making it ideal for anything from laboratories with a smaller overall urinalysis workload to a point-of-care setting like a GP’s office or a hospital ward.

Multi-wavelength reflectance photometry with CMOS camera

Measurement principles 

Test strips are fed from the loader to the photo detection unit, where four slightly overlapping images are taken of the test strip using white LED light and a CMOS camera. A single complete image of the whole test strip is then composed. From this, reflectivity analysis of the test pads is performed.
