Urinalysis

Northern Light Laboratory’s Urinalysis department offers a variety of urine, serum and fecal testing. The urinalysis department works to detect a wide-variety of disorders including: UTIs, diabetes, renal disease and malabsorption disorders.

Fully-automated urinalysis testing is performed on the Beckman IRIS. The IRIS performs specific gravity by refractometer, evaluates dipstick chemical results by a dual-wave reflectance system to ensure color correction, and automated microscopic evaluation of sediment using auto-particle recognition software obtaining 500 frames of information per specimen. This technology permits rapid hands-free urine evaluation allowing technologists to increase turn-around-time while maintaining accuracy.
