Liquid-Ready QC Solution for POC Urinalysis Instruments Helps Labs Streamline Daily Operations
Healthcare and laboratory professionals need to ensure consistent and accurate results. Now, a liquid-ready urinalysis solution for use with point-of-care urinalysis instruments and reagents, including 12 parameters and hCG, aims to help labs streamline their daily operations.
Siemens Healthineers (Erlangen, Germany) has launched Chek-Stix Liquid Quality Control solutions - the latest innovation in its urinalysis portfolio. Chek-Stix UA Diptube Liquid QC contains both Level 1 (negative for all chemistry parameters and positive for hCG) and Level 2 (positive for all chemistry parameters and negative for hCG), packaged in one box. Both Level 1 and Level 2 diptube controls are ready-to-use liquid quality controls for use with the CLINITEK Status+ Analyzer, CLINITEK Advantus Analyzer, and visual-read urine strips.
Liquid-ready solution means less time spent on prepping quality control solution and more time on running patient samples. The product is barcode-enabled for quick, accurate data input and supports Siemens’ broad urine chemistry parameter menu. Validated for use with all Siemens’ urinalysis devices and reagents, the product has a shelf life of 22 months from the manufacture date.
