OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of the Sysmex UF1000i automatic urine screening system in the quantitative culture of fast-growth aerobic/facultative bacteria. METHODS AND RESULTS A standard procedure was used to recover fast-growth aerobic/facultative micro-organisms in 1225 samples, applying (Sysmex(®)) flow cytometry for parallel bacteria and leucocyte counts. According to the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve, the optimal cut-off values to detect bacteriuria >10… CONTINUE READING
