Rapid diagnosis of UTIs.

Uricult is an accurate and easy-to-perform bacterial culture method for the diagnosis of urinary-tract infections (UTIs). The dip-paddle culture system can be performed in-house and provides reliable results within 24 hours. The dip-paddle system is based on two culture media. One side of the plastic paddle is covered with green CLED media and the other with reddish EMB media for the detection of microbes causing UTIs. The CLED media is intended for determining the total microbial count. The EMB media is intended for detecting Gram-negative microbes. The kit includes 10 tests per box and can be stored at room temperature.
