Urinalysis strip test

Siemens new Clinitek Micro-albumin 9 Urinalysis Strip is now available in Europe. The strips, which can be used on the firm's Clinitek Status analyser, or the Clinitek Advantus analyser, provide nine tests to detect and monitor kidney disease.

The urine strips provide the Albumin to Creatinine (A:C) and Protein to Creatinine (P:C) ratios, adjusted for varying patient urine concentrations to minimise false negative/positive results. This allows for immediate indication of normal or abnormal results, Siemens explains. A:C ratio results are used for early detection of kidney disease in patients with diabetes. Early intervention may stop or reverse the process of kidney disease. The P:C ratio is used to manage patients with kidney disease. The P:C ratio results provided by the Clinitek analysers meet the needs of clinical specialists managing patients diagnosed kidney disease who are likely to excrete high levels of protein.
