Using the fully automated urine particle analyzer UF-1000i , examination was carried out for finding the reference interval of urine sediment in schoolchildren ( 7 to 15 years old ) . As a result, we obtained the upper limit of a child's reference interval by gender. This is valuable data as reference information.
