The Roche Chemstrip Urine Analyzer delivers an affordable- reliable alternative to visual urinalysis test strip evaluation. This Urine Analyzer keeps physician office lab- clinic- and hospital point-of-care urinalysis testing simple and cost-effective.
Highly automated functions ensure reliable measurement
The Chemstrip Analyzer is Roche Diagnostics smallest- compact analyzer for one-at-a-time test strip evaluation. Easy operation- approx. 50 tests/hour- throughput and flexible software options make the Chemstrip Analyzer the ideal choice for smaller-scale laboratories and physicians’ offices seeking a cost-effective way to improve standardization of urinalysis measurement.
The analyzer reads the urine test strips under standardized conditions at three wavelengths- saves the results to memory and outputs them via its own built-in printer and/or serial (RS 232) interface. Up to 100 results can be stored in memory for several print options. In strongly alkaline urine samples- the Chemstrip101 Analyzer automatically corrects the results of the specific gravity test.
An optional barcode reader enables easy- reliable patient identification. The instrument is designed for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use by qualified physicians and laboratory staff.
The measurement cycle takes only 70 seconds
The benefits at a glance
Faster- easier handling – After dipping and inserting the test strip- simply press the start button. Incubation- measurement- calculation of results and printout are all automatic.
Reliable performance with minimal maintenance – Calibration with Chemstrip Calibration Strips ensure stat consistency. Built-in check functions detect errors in handling or instrument failure. All contaminated parts are fully removable and easy to clean.
Flexible integration into lab environment – Over and above sequential sample numbering- patient identification via barcode reader or AT/PC keyboard is available. Results can be transmitted to a PC or host computer.
More options for your convenience – Three function keys and display messages enable easy user guidance and various instrument settings. Results are printed by a built-in thermal printer with either conventional- arbitrary or SI units and with flagging of abnormals. Up to 100 results can be stored.
Chemstrip Analyzer in primary care
The Chemstrip Analyzer is most suitable for rapid screening of diseases of the kidney and the urogenital tract- carbohydrate metabolic disorders (diabetes mellitus)- liver diseases and hemolytic disorders. Early recognition of diseases like urinary tract infections or diabetes enables the physician to start treatment early to prevent or delay serious complications.
