Siemens makes new urinalysis strips available in Europe

Siemens Healthcare Deutschland : 30 September, 2008  (New Product)
Siemens Healthcare has announced the availability in Europe of a new urinalysis testing product, Clinitek Microalbumin 9 Urinalysis Strips.
The strips provide nine tests to detect and monitor kidney disease across the continuum of patient care. They can be used on Siemens’ Clinitek Status analyser or the Clinitek Advantus analyser in a group practice, laboratory or physician office setting.

Identifying diabetic patients with early indications of kidney disease or established kidney disease presents a significant challenge in medicine today. When used on Siemens’ Clinitek analysers, the new 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.

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 Siemens’ Clinitek analysers meet the needs of clinical specialists managing patients diagnosed kidney disease who are likely to excrete high levels of protein.
