The UC-3500 Fully automated Urine Chemistry Analyzer (Sysmex Corporation, Kobe, Japan) is a device that can carry out all operations from sampling to measurement in a fully automated manner. The company uniquely developed the technology for analyzing the colors on a urine test strip using a color CMOS sensor, which is the heart of the test strip measurement, to achieve high measurement accuracy. The colors on the urine test strip change as a result of a chemical reaction. The analyzer detects the change in color and outputs the result of measurement. In this method, light plays an important role in the analysis.
