Red Blood Cell Data Correlation Between Urinalysis Methods

Red Blood Cell Data Correlation between Urinalysis Methods

What does it mean when you have positive urine chemistry red blood cell (RBC) results but see no RBCs under the microscope?

In part one of our webinar series, Dr. Michael Samoszuk illustrates which properties of RBCs interact chemically with iRICELL3000 urine test strips to cause positive urine chemistry results, even in the absence of whole RBCs under the microscope.

Watch this webinar to learn more about the cause of contrasting results between urine chemistry and urine microscopy and understand why your results may still be in perfect correlation.
