1.) Selectivity: Profile and panels for urinalysis can be selected and run in accordance with client preference thereby providing cost savings to the laboratory and customer.
2.) Clinically significant indices can be calculated from the date:
RFI (renal failure index) – This is an expression of the urinary sodium concentration as a function of urine creatinine to serum creatinine.
FE (fractional excretion of sodium) – this is an expression of the fraction of filtered sodium that escapes reabsorption and is excreted into the Urine. Early warning of volume depletion for hospitalized patients on I.V. is often difficult to detect at the bedside. Detection could easily prevent acute renal failure and subsequent transfer to ICU.
NI (Nutritional Index) – is determined by serum BUN indexed to urine creatinine.
P/C Ratio (Protein / Creatinine ratio) is an expression of protein concentration relative to creatinine in untimed specimens is another way to avoid the necessity of collection of a 24-hour urine. Urinary protein/creatinine concentration ratios in excess of 3.5 usually indicate nephrotic range protein area.
3.) Love volume requirements of less than 1.0 Ml.
4.) Sciteck will provide an analyzer that will meet the needs of your laboratory. Instruments are provided to you based on reagent purchase volumes and length of contract. The reagent system utilizes 11 to 13 slots on the auto-analyzer leaving approximately 17 empty reagent slots available for expansion of the AutoUA® SYSTEM AND YOUR USE FOR ESOTERIC TESTING, CHEMISTRY, DRUG SCREENING, ETC. In addition, at the end of the contract the instrument belongs to you.
