Product Frequently Asked Questions
How does Urine Testing System™ work?
The patient collects the urine in the UTS Tube™. A healthcare professional then connects the patented push-fit UTS-10 Cap™ to the UTS Tube™ containing the urine sample.
This assembled UTS Module™ is inverted, exposing the reagent pads to the urine sample and then loaded into the UTS Digital Analyser™ for digital analysis – using reflectance photometry to take readings at automatically-timed intervals.
Digital results are displayed on the UTS Digital Analyser™ and the UTS Desktop Software™ – and can be saved into the patient’s electronic health record.
Please refer to the Instructions for Use and tutorials for product training.
What does the UTS-10 Cap™ test for?
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.
Does the patient take and connect the UTS-10 Cap™?
The patient collects the sample in a UTS Tube™ and seals it with a lid. The push-fit UTS-10 Cap™ is then connected to the UTS Tube™ by the healthcare professional.
This action ruptures the watertight seal in the lid and allows the urine sample to pass into the testing chamber in the UTS-10 Cap™ and interact with the chemical reagent pads. The sample remains isolated from the tester.
What training is required to operate Urine Testing System™?
Urine Testing System™ requires minimal training and healthcare professionals can begin using it almost immediately. You will have access to a library of short video tutorials as well as Instructions for Use. Test results must be interpreted by a qualified healthcare professional.
