Uriscan-BK is a specialized urine analyzer for the diagnosis of proteinuria with automatic calculation of the protein / creatinine ratio.
Unique feature of the Uriscan-BK device is the simultaneous determination of protein concentration in urine (pyrogallol red method), creatinine concentration in urine (Jaffe method) and automatic calculation of protein/creatinine ratio.
Calculation of the ratio: protein / creatinine in the morning portion of urine is a modern alternative to the determination of protein concentration in the daily urine sample, which for many years was the "gold standard" in the diagnosis of proteinuria. Since the value of the protein-creatinine ratio in the morning urine portion is clearly correlated with the level of daily proteinuria, in all current clinical guidelines of the professional medical communities, it is recommended to determine the protein/creatinine ratio.
Determination of protein in the urine is carried out by the method of pyrogallol red. This method is sensitive to all protein fractions. It allows you to accurately determine the concentration of protein in the urine in proteinuria of different Genesis.
Determination of creatinine in the urine is carried out by the Jaffe method. This is a standard, unified method for determining the concentration of creatinine in the urine.
The protein/creatinine ratio is calculated automatically. No additional operations or auxiliary calculations are needed. The result is displayed and printed on the check.
Only 3 buttons are used to control the analyzer. 5 minutes are enough to train a technician and put the device into operation.
Convenient step-by-step menu structure: at each stage the device gives a hint what to do next.
