Category: Urinalysis Analyzers


The AUTION MAX AX-4030 from ARKRAY is an automated urine chemistry analyzer that offers an enhanced design. As a second generation analyzer, the system aims to provide reliable results with minimal downtime. It can help optimize workflow with uninterrupted operation, as users can load the rack, press start, and walk away. Up to 400 AUTION test strips can be loaded, with a throughput of up to 225 tests an hour (STAT capabilities included). Results offer sensitivity and specificity, clinically significant reporting ranges, a color compensation pad designed to improve accuracy, and an abnormal color detection notifies the user of potential false positive reactions. The analyzer offers easy-to-load strips with no calibration required, an LCD user interface with built-in printer, and minimal maintenance (less than 5 minutes daily)


iQ Workcell from Beckman Coulter Diagnostics

The scalable iQ Series Urinalysis Workcell from Beckman Coulter Diagnostics is designed to deliver accurate and standardized results for improved workflow. The iQ2000 and iQ3000 pair the Beckman Coulter Iris iQ200 Digital Flow Morphology system and the ARKRAY AUTION MAX AX-4030 into a scalable solution that processes up to 70 samples per hour (iQ2000) and up to 101 samples per hour (iQ3000). Both workcells combine urine chemistry and microscopy into a fully automated, walk-away solution designed to be easy to use and maintain. Once urine chemistry tests are completed on a workcell, the urine microscopy analyzer uses proprietary digital flow morphology technology with Auto-Particle Recognition (APR) software that evaluates particles by size, shape, contrast, and texture. This software enables the analyzer to auto-classify 12 particles and sub-classify 27 particles, reducing the need for manual microscopic reviews. With on-screen results verification and edit-free release technology, laboratory users can improve turnaround time, maximize productivity, and auto-release results based on user-defined parameters.

UN-Series Automated Urinalysis Solution from Sysmex Corporation

The Sysmex UN-Series Automated Urinalysis Solution delivers urine chemistry strip testing, particle analysis by flow cytometry, and digital particle imaging in one configurable line. The system allows for reduced manual microscopy, enabling laboratory professionals to focus on other tasks. With its integrated quality control management system, scalability, and walk-away functionality, a variety of solutions are available to meet the needs of any laboratory.

As part of Sysmex’s offerings, the Siemens CLINITEK Novus automated urine chemistry analyzer combines dry-pad urine chemistry technology and a cassette test format. The Sysmex UF-5000 fully automated urine particle analyzer provides proven fluorescence flow technology for accurate results and flagging, and the UD-10 digital imaging device allows automatic review of abnormal samples. The Urinalysis Data Manager (UDM) with BeyondCare Quality Monitor for Urinalysis enables laboratories to better manage quality data and proactively monitor the health and accuracy of the lab’s analyzers.
