UriStain™ - for the Microscopic Examination of Urine Sediment
UriStain™ is a urine sediment stain, intended for staining centrifuged urine sediment and used for the examination of WBCs, RBCs, bacteria, yeast and casts. The stain contains various dyes that aid in differentiating the abnormal cellular elements found in urine. UriStain is a ‘one solution’ modification of the Sternheimer and Malvin procedure which compares directly to the Sedi-Stain product.
Sediment Stain – A Valuable Diagnostic Technique
Microscopic examination of urinary sediment is a rapid, easy-to-perform diagnostic procedure that can provide important information to the clinician. Aside from taking an actual tissue biopsy of the kidney, it is widely recognised that the microscopic findings of the urinary sediment are a reliable and valuable diagnostic technique which will give a clear indicator of intrinsic renal disease.
Long Shelf-life, No Filtration Required
UriStain™ is a stabilised modification of the Sternheimer - Malbin Urine Sediment Stain for the easy differentiation of red and white cells.
