Automatic urinalysis

Automatic urinalysis

An automated unit for chemical and microscopic examination of urine. This instruction video on automatic biochemical analysers was made in collaboration with the Dept. of Clinical Biochemistry and Haematology of the Faculty Hospital in Brno, the Dept. of Biochemistry, and the Data Processing Centre of the MU Fac. of Medicine in Brno. It is provided with a spoken commentary which, on the one hand, gives a static description of the individual components of the analyser and, on the other, accompanies individual demonstrations of its function. The video also contains a description and a demonstration of the functioning of the automated urine laboratory (automated unit for chemical and microscopic examination of urine iQ200).

The Arkray Aution MAX analyser is a device for automatic chemical analysis of urine by means of diagnostic strips. One millilitre of urine is imbibed from a test-tube and pipetted out into ten indication zones of the diagnostic strip for semiquantitative determination of glucose, ketones, proteins, bilirubin, urobilinogen, nitrites, leukocytes, erythrocytes, pH, and density. The changes in the colour of the indication zones are evaluated by reflex photometry. The analyser is linked both by software and mechanically to another analyser which automatically assesses the microscopic image of native urine. The duration of the video is 7 min.
