Urine Testing System™ works seamlessly as a closed, integrated system. It includes the patented UTS-10 Cap™, UTS Tube™, UTS Digital Analyser™ and UTS Desktop Software™.
UTS-10 Cap™ is a patented single-use cap containing the reagent pads to test ten parameters: leukocytes, nitrite, urobilinogen, protein, pH, blood, specific gravity, ketone, bilirubin and glucose.
The patient collects the urine in a UTS Tube™. With no need to open the sealed sample, the healthcare professional connects the UTS-10 Cap™ with one -click creating a leak-proof module. This UTS module is then inverted, exposing the reagent pads to the urine sample.
The healthcare professional receives the sealed urine sample from the patient in a UTS Tube™ and connects the push-fit UTS-10 Cap™, a patented single-use cap that contains reagent pads to test 10 parameters (leukocytes, nitrite, urobilinogen, protein, pH, blood, specific gravity, ketone, bilirubin and glucose). This leak-proof UTS Module is then inverted to expose the reagent pads to the urine sample and it is simply loaded into the UTS Digital Analyser™, which uses reflectance photometry to take accurate readings at automatically-timed intervals.
The digital results can then be viewed either on the inbuilt LCD screen when the user is ready, or, when connected to a computer, they are also displayed on the UTS Desktop Software™. From here the results can be saved into the patient’s electronic health record.
The sample can be disposed of in clinical waste or sent to the laboratory with no need to decant, reducing the risk of contamination. Only one container is used from providing the sample to laboratory analysis.
