Reagent strip screening for sediment abnormalities identified by automated microscopy in urine from patients suspected to have urinary tract disease.

Abstract

We assessed the ability of reagent strip screening to predict the finding of blood cells and bacteria using an automated urinalysis workstation (The Yellow IRIS, International Remote Imaging Systems, Chatsworth, Calif) in 427 specimens submitted for urine culture. The sensitivities of leukocyte esterase, hemoglobin, and nitrite detection on reagent strips… (More)
