What are the uses of the clinical Design digital Urine testing system?
Our automated urinalysis system offers healthcare practitioners an efficient and hygienic alternative to manual urinalysis methods. Our urine testing system has been designed with healthcare professionals in mind, to provide a quick, streamlined testing process. Minimal training is required, and data can be transferred digitally to patient and practice records to increase and improve accuracy.
Our urinalysis technology can be used for:
- Glucose testing
- Specific gravity testing
- Protein testing
- Ketone testing
- Leukocyte testing
- PH testing
- (Micro)albumin testing
- Albumin to creatinine ratio testing
Urine Testing System™
The Clinical Design Urine Testing System™ safely and accurately analyses urine for any of the following reasons:
A urine test for diabetes is usually fairly straightforward. A urine glucose test involves giving a sample, which will be tested for abnormal levels of glucose. Typically, there is little or no glucose in urine, so if glucose levels are traceable, this could be an indication of diabetes. Our digital testing system makes the urine glucose test quick and easy, and there’s no dipstick involved.
Specific gravity testing
A specific gravity test, or sg urine test, is a convenient way for healthcare professionals to determine a patient’s hydration status. A urine specific gravity test can confirm whether a patient has primarily central diabetes insipidus and nephrogenic diabetes insipidus or not. Both conditions can cause extreme thirst and excessive urination. With our simplified design, our urine testing system makes a sg urine test more reliable and efficient.
A protein in urine test is carried out to detect abnormalities in the kidney(s). High levels in a urine test for protein can be a sign of a kidney condition. This test is also used to determine whether treatment is working effectively. Early detection of protein in a urine test can mean a patient is diagnosed quickly, and with our urinalysis technology, you will get an automated analysis of the results.
A ketone test is used to detect a diabetes complication, known as diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA. Your body produces ketones when you don’t have enough insulin in your body. Doing a regular urine ketone test is an important way for patients to manage their diabetes.
Our digital urine test means patients can get their ketone test results easily.
To determine whether or not you have a urinary tract infection, your doctor will ask you to do a urine leukocyte test. If there are leukocytes in a urine test this suggests white blood cells are in your urine, which indicates your body is fighting an infection. A microscope is typically used to identify leukocytes in a urine test, but our UTS Digital Analyser is effective at examining leukocytes in a urine test.
A PH urine test is done to measure the level of acidity in your urine. Detecting the urine PH is done to determine or monitor the formation of kidney stones. Certain types of kidney stones are likely to develop in acidic urine, and others in alkaline urine. A high acidic level in a ph urine test can also be a result of a urinary tract infection or kidney problem. To ensure patients get accurate findings, our automated urinalysis test has been engineered to provide valid, digital results.
A urine albumin test is done to discern levels of blood protein in your urine. This test can be used to identify early signs of kidney damage. This urine test for microalbumin is especially useful for people who are at risk of developing kidney damage. Kidney damage can cause proteins to leak through into the urine, which is why a urine test for microalbumin is done. With our digital urinalysis test, a patient’s results can be saved directly their electronic health record.
A urine nitrite test is done to determine a urinary tract infection. Not only is it used for the diagnosis of an infection, a urine nitrite test is also used to decipher the cause of the infection. If there are nitrites in a urine test, this could indicate the cause of the urinary tract infection (UTI) being the bacteria Escherichia coli. To make the process of a urine nitrite test more hygienic, use our automated urinalysis test, which is the first ever closed urine testing system.
Albumin to creatinine ratio testing
An ACR urine test is used as the first method to detect elevated protein, it’s the most effective way to screen for high levels of albumin. The results of a urine acr test can then determine whether there is kidney disease. This test is useful for patients with diabetes as this can detect any kidney-related complications as a result of diabetes. For an effective and bespoke user experience, use our urinalysis technology.
