Product News: LAURA XL: A fully-automated urine analyzer with high performance and affordability

Combining urine strip reading and digital microscopy, the LAURA XL delivers fully automated processing of urine samples

11 Oct 2019


As the prevalence of kidney-related diseases grows, proper screening and detection is ever-more necessary, it’s good to have urinalysis equipment that is reliable, automated, and affordable. 

The LAURA XL is a fully-automated urine analyzer combining trusted urine strip analysis and digital microscopy. It offers automatic evaluation of 10 chemistry parameters and 16 sediment categories. 

In addition, users can select from 16 manual and 4 customizable sediment categories. Concentration of sediment particles is achieved without centrifugation by simple use of gravity force. 

The gravity sedimentation is a very gentle technique preventing damage of fragile elements and allowing cost-effective measurement by replacing disposable cuvettes with long-life, washable cuvette module. 

Due to clear high-res images, LAURA XL rapidly decreases a need for additional evaluation of results by visual microscopy. The system is delivered with special adaptors which enable measurement of low volume samples - minimal volume for analysis of both urine chemistry and sediment is then 0,9 mL of urine. It operates in 3 modes: chemistry only (180 tests/hour), sediment only (140 tests/hour), and hybrid (140 tests/hour).

LAURA XL is a powerful tool for larger labs looking for a high-performance solution to automate their routine urinalysis.
