The world’s only hygienic, easy-to-use and accurate digital point-of-care urine test named Urine Testing System was launched at Arab Health 2019 by Clinical Design (Penryn, Cornwall, UK). The digital point-of-care urine test has been designed to improve the entire process from receiving the sample and recording results, to analysis in the laboratory.

The highly intuitive system features sealed, leak-proof samples, automatically timed readings and the ability to save digital results directly into the patient’s electronic health record. No decanting is required, reducing the risk of contamination and false positive samples being sent to laboratories. Digital readings are also more accurate compared to manual urinalysis as they eliminate variation in subjective analysis and the risk of error during manual recording.

Urine Testing System works seamlessly as a closed integrated system and includes a patented, single-use cap containing reagent pads to test ten parameters: leukocytes, nitrite, urobilinogen, protein, pH, blood, specific gravity, ketone, bilirubin and glucose. Once the patient has collected the urine sample, the healthcare professional simply connects UTS-10 Cap; creating a sealed, leak-proof module. This UTS module is then loaded into the UTS Digital Analyzer and the automatically timed, digital results are shown on the integrated LCD screen or in the UTS Desktop Software if connected to a computer.

The sample can be disposed of in clinical waste or be sent to the laboratory with no need to decant. It is specially designed to fit in standard laboratory racking – and can be purchased with or without boric acid depending on laboratory requirements. The current test takes approximately one to two minutes and risks include spillage of a contaminated sample, as well as human errors during analysis and/or the manual recording into a patient's records.

“We have developed a simple integrated system that increases the efficacy of patient point-of-care urine testing and improves first-time diagnosis. It is the only closed urine testing system available anywhere in the world and we are delighted to be able to showcase it at Arab Health 2019,” said Oliver Blackwell, CEO of Clinical Design.
