Urinalysis System

The CLINITEK AUWI System combines two of the most widely used urine analyzers used for clinical labs—the CLINTEK Atlas Automated Urine Chemistry Analyzer and the Sysmex UF-1000i Urine Cell Analyzer. By combining these two analyzers, the CLINITEK AUWi System streamlines workflow by automatically transporting samples from one workstation to another, managing samples requiring sediment analysis, and verifying results to be reported to the laboratory information system.
