Comparing automated microscopy

Comparing Automated Microscopy Data to Manual Review

Are you having difficulty categorizing urine sediment particles due to operator subjectivity?

Automating urine sediment microscopy can help standardize particle characterization. In the final installment of this three-part webinar series, Dr. Michael Samoszuk presents automated and manual microscopy study data from Dr. Sorin Gîju, clinical chemist at the Clinical Emergency Hospital in Timisoara, Romania.

Dr. Samoszuk compares results from the iRICELL3000 automated microscopy system and manual microscopy for the same patient samples. The iRICELL3000 system’s proprietary Digital Flow Morphology technology captures 500 images per sample and offers 12-particle classification, resulting in fewer opportunities to miss urine particles.

Watch this webinar to enhance your understanding of your urinalysis results.
