Abstract

Background: Urine analysis is one of the most common tests for assessing urinary-tract infections, which are the most frequently occurring infectious diseases in community populations. Urine culture is still the 'gold standard' for the detection of urinary tract infection, however, it is time- and labor-intensive and and has a high number of unnecessary cultures. The aim of this study was to evaluate the analytical and diagnostic performance of a new urinalysis system LabUMat with UriSed (77 Elektronika, Budapest, Hungary) in comparison to urine culture as the reference method.
