These strips provide nine tests to detect and monitor kidney disease across the continuum of patient care. They can be used on Siemens’ CLINITEK Status® analyzer or the CLINITEK Advantus™ analyzer in a group practice, laboratory or physician office setting.
Identifying diabetic patients with early indications of kidney disease or established kidney disease presents a significant challenge in medicine today. When used on Siemens’ CLINITEK analyzers, the new urine strips provide the Albumin to Creatinine (A:C) and Protein to Creatinine (P:C) ratios, adjusted for varying patient urine concentrations to minimize false negative/positive results. This allows for immediate indication of normal or abnormal results.
A:C ratio results are used for early detection of kidney disease in patients with diabetes. Early intervention may stop or reverse the process of kidney disease. The P:C ratio is used to manage patients with kidney disease. The P:C ratio results provided by the Siemens’ CLINITEK analyzers meet the needs of clinical specialists managing patients diagnosed kidney disease who are likely to excrete high levels of protein.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
