LAURA XL Sediment is based on principle of automatic microscopy. After homogenization, sample dosing into the cuvette and collection of elements on the bottom of cuvette is 15 images acquired for each urine sample. Centrifugation is not carried out – a native urine is used. Evaluation of images is based on the principle of neural networks. Automated analyser of urine sediment LAURA XL Sediment allows the determination of the following elements: white blood cells (WBC), red blood cells (RBC), epithelial cells (squamous – SQE, others – NSQE), casts (CAST), crystals (CRY – oxalate (CaOx), triple phosphate (TRI), uric acid (UA)), bacteria (BACT), yeast (YST), mucus (MUC) and sperm (SPRM). A special category is called as unclassified elements – for example deformed elements, but the user can identify them individually.
