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.

StatSpin OvaTube

StatSpin OvaTube

Ova and Parasite Detection System

In-Clinic Parasite Detection Test Kit

OvaTube is the ideal in-clinic parasite detection test kit which is suitable for companion and small animals and has been developed for use in veterinary hospitals, practices and reference laboratories. In a situation where an animal has internal parasites or a particular parasite, the concentration flotation technique is recommended. Particularly the centrifugal technique, for the maximum yield of ova and oocysts.

Worm Egg Detection Method For Companion And Small Animals

The basic principle uses a flotation solution of special Specific Gravity in which the faecal sample is mixed and poured into a centrifuge tube. This can then be incubated vertically on the bench for up to 10-15 minutes. However, it is proven that if the tube is centrifuged at slow speed for a few minutes, the accuracy is greatly improved. Importantly, centrifugation forces heavy debris to the bottom of the tube; allows flotation of the ova and prevents debris from obscuring the final microscopic examination. OvaTube together with our ready-made Vetlab Flotation Solution is ideal for performing both techniques.

OvaTube – The Perfect In-Clinic Solution: fast easy and clean

The StatSpin OvaTube is the first centrifugation method that is easy and fast without any mess, with a simple coring tool to obtain a sample. Just add the sample to the tube and mix with standard flotation fluid. Centrifuge in either a fixed angle or horizontal centrifuge, remove the tube, add a coverslip, and twist. In just a few minutes results are ready to read.

Amies Transport Medium, with or without Charcoal

Laboratory transport swabs for sample collection, preservation and transport prior to culture for bacteria and fungi.
