True cellular urinalysis controls that contain cellular components at two clinically significant levels, providing thorough evaluation of Automated Urine microscopy analysers.
Automated Urine Cellular and Particle Analysis Controls for Sysmex® UF series and Iris iQ200 instruments.
Recent advances in photo optical recognition software and laser technologies, have enabled automation of the laborious microscopic examination of urine.
For any Instrument, the use of appropriate controls to demonstrate that the method can identify and enumerate correctly the cellular and particular components found in a patient sample is essential.
Up until recently the use of a control with true cellular components has not been available for this type of automation.
The launch of the UA-Cellular range of controls finally provides a true cellular control that you can count on……literally!
Instrumentation controls should represent the same procedural processes and reflect similar values to those expected by patient samples.
UA-Cellular for UF and UA-Cellular for IQ are unique products that contain components at two clinically significant levels.
They provide thorough evaluation of an instrument’s ability to identify and quantify white blood cells, red blood cells, non-squamous epithelial cells and crystals, casts, and bacteria.
The UA cellular controls are instrument specific and come as a 2 level control with clinically relevant levels of RBC’s, WBC’s, NSE’s, bacterial cells, casts and crystals, specific for the operating technology.
The controls have excellent closed vial stability of 105 days and a open vial stability of 30 days.
Presented in flip top squeezy bottles to avoid pipetting and possible contamination, the controls follow the patient pathway to confirm instrument functionality.
