Urine Sediment Counter Plate, 100pcs/box
A urine sediment counter plate is a specialized laboratory tool used in clinical urinalysis to analyse the microscopic components of urine. It typically consists of a glass or plastic plate divided into several compartments or chambers. Each chamber is designed to hold a specific volume of urine sample, allowing for the examination of sediment under a microscope.
Here’s how it generally works:
Collection of Urine Sample: A fresh urine sample is collected from the patient. This sample can be collected in a sterile container.
Preparation of Sediment: The urine sample is centrifuged to concentrate the sediment at the bottom of the container. After centrifugation, the supernatant (liquid above the sediment) is carefully poured off, leaving the sediment at the bottom.
Placing Sample on Counter Plate: A measured volume of the concentrated urine sediment is then placed onto the compartments or chambers of the urine sediment counter plate. This volume is typically standardized to ensure consistency in analysis.
Microscopic Examination: The plate is then examined under a microscope. The sediment components such as cells (red blood cells, white blood cells), casts, crystals, bacteria, and other particles can be identified and quantified.
Reporting Results: The findings from the microscopic examination are recorded and reported. This information can provide valuable insights into the patient’s kidney function, urinary tract health, and potential presence of infections or other abnormalities.
The urine sediment counter plate helps streamline the process of urine sediment analysis by providing a standardized platform for preparing and examining samples, facilitating accurate and efficient diagnosis in clinical settings.
