BACKGROUND Microscopic examination of the urine sediment is an essential part in the evaluation of renal and urinary tract diseases. Traditionally, manual microscopic techniques have several methodological steps that may contribute to imprecision, inaccuracy, and are time-consuming. Recently, the iQ200 automated urine microscopy analyzer has been introduced to analyze the unspun urine, thereby improving accuracy, precision and throughput. METHODS In this study, we compared its performance… CONTINUE READING
