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.
