cobas u 601 urine analyzer

Platform for urine strip testing - fully automated solution for laboratories

The cobas u 601 urine analyzer is a modular, analytical system platform for urine strip testing and features a fully automated solution for laboratories processing 100 – 1,000 urine samples per day

The innovative and proven technologies allow cobas u 601 to deliver high quality results and minimize operator intervention while providing confidence in results1,3

 

Innovative photometer technology

 

Using the new photometer technology for the strip result reading enables the instrument to deliver complete information for blood testing: concentration of hemoglobin and counting result of erythrocytes up to 50 cells/μL by differentiating the intact and lysed erythrocytes.

Using the new photometer technology enables cobas u 601 to spot errors from the testing process and eliminate wrong results. If there is dust on the strip, or if the strip was bent, or if not enough/too much urine sample was pipetted onto the strip, the instrument can give error messages to indicate the reasons.

 

Combur-Test® strip technology

 

Combur-Test® strip technology has more than 50 years history in the market. It is proven technology and is continuing to be used on cobas u 601 urine analyzer.

 

Modular system

 

cobas u 601 stand-alone analyzer can be upgraded on-site with the cobas u 701 module (automated sediment microscopy) to a urine work area – one platform with automated sample transportation through the entire system, with continuous loading of urine samples.
