Changes in urine can often be observed before changes in blood chemistry - but methods and skill levels can determine if we find those results. With automated urine chemistry and microscopy comes improved sample handling, quality control, and image capture. Join this presentation to understand the differences between automated and manual urinalysis, and determine which methodology is right for you.
Understand reasons to perform urinalysis in-house or by sending to a reference laboratory.
Become familiar with how work-flow efficiency can be improved when automated microscopy is utilized, as compared to manual methods
Understand the benefit of examination of fresh warm urine, which allows more accurate identification of elements and removes the chance for artefacts to develop following urine cooling, storage, and shipment.
