UX-2000 is the instrument which is integrated the system of test strip analysis and urine particle analysis. On this instrument, the results of test strip analysis and urine particle analysis can be displayed on one screen. The integration of both analysis enable operator to manage the results easily by using the crosscheck between related parameters such as BLD and RBC, LEU and WBC, NIT and BACT. Therefore, reliability of measurement results can be improved.
In this study, we evaluated basic performance of UX-2000 such as within-run reproducibility, carryover testing, and correlation with UF-1000i , and with Clinitek ATLAS. The results of within-run reproducibility and carryover testing were excellent. And there was no problem about correlation with UF-1000i , and with Clinitek ATLAS. Thus, it seems UX-2000 is useful to routine assay of urine to promote efficient and speedy.
