Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced a range of Sterilin Primary Urine Tubes, which are designed to provide easier and more efficient urinalysis, saving time and resources in the laboratory.
The tubes achieve this through fitting directly into the racks of automated urinalysis systems, eliminating the need to decant samples prior to analysis.
As well as saving time and resources, Sterilin Primary Urine tubes also reduce the potential for errors.
According to Sterilin, standard urine collection vessels are too large to fit into the racking of current urinalysis systems, meaning samples must be decanted into suitable tubes in the laboratory.
This is not only time consuming, but it also presents opportunities for spillages and errors.
Sterilin Primary Urine Collection Tubes are designed to fit perfectly into the racking of current automated urinalysis systems, allowing faster, simpler and more efficient processing of samples.
The clear plastic tubes have a rounded base, which Sterilin claims is essential for efficient mixing of samples in the analyser.
They are supplied with or without boric acid preservative, depending on the needs of individual laboratories.
Sterilin Primary Urine Tubes are available with a urine collection cup for easier sample collection and are 95kPa-compliant with leak-free screw caps, for safe and secure transportation of samples.
Each tube is CE marked and labelled, for accurate recording of patient details.
