Clinitek Status with Multistix 10 SG reagent Strip-colorimetric
Performed in Mott ER lab only. Includes: Glucose, Bilirubin, Ketones, Specific Gravity, Blood, pH, Protein, Urobilinogen, Nitrate, and Leukocyte Esterase. These qualitative and semi-quantitative measurements are useful in the evaluation of kidney function, urinary tract infections, carbohydrate metabolism (diabetes), and liver function.
Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results
Detergents and contaminants can interfere with patient results. Highly pigmented urines will interfere with the colorimetric reactions of the urinalysis strip and should be sent to the central lab for testing.
Urines that, are grossly blood, have a distance abnormal color (e.g. blue, green), are low volume or have any other issue will be canceled and sent to Core Hematology Laboratory for a full UA.
All samples that give positive results for Glucose, Blood, Protein, Ketones, Leukocytes, or Nitrites will be sent to the Core Hematology Laboratory for a full UA.
If the Mott ER lab urinalysis analyzers become inoperable, all specimens will be sent to Core Hematology lab for analysis for full UA.
