General

  • +

    Why should the 3 litre container be used?

    The 3 litre container is usually large enough for the 24-hours urine collection for more than 90 % of patients. The 2 litre container is usually suitable for 60 % of patients.

  • +

    What is the purpose of the clear strip on the 3 litre urine container?

    The clear strip is used as a viewing window with a scale to easily and accurately determine the collection amount. The 3 litre container and the UriSet 24 can therefore be hygienically and easily read from the outside.

  • +

    What is stabilised in the UriSet 24 with hydrochloric acid and for how long?

    Catecholamine, metanephrine, vanillylmandelic acid, homovanillic acid and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid are optimally stabilised by hydrochloric acid for up to 7 days.

  • +

    Which stabiliser is used in the UriSet 24?

    The stabiliser in the UriSet 24 is 20% hydrochloric acid (9 ml).

  • +

    Is the UriSet 24 suitable for transportation?

    After collecting the sample and establishing the volume collected, the urine can be transferred to a Urine Monovette® or transport tube. These sample tubes included in the complete set enable sample transport in accordance with P650 and also increase sample stability through light protection.

  • +

    What is the volume of the urine cup with integrated transfer device?

    The urine cup with integrated transfer device can contain 100 ml.

  • +

    Are the collection containers resistant to acids and alkalis?

    The urine collection containers are made of polyethylene (PE). PE has a high resistance to chemicals. Diluted acids, alkalis, alcohol, oil and water and saline solutions do not affect PE. Concentrated, oxidising acids, such as nitric acid and halogens, have a corrosive effect.

    What is mid-stream urine?

    After cleaning the external genitalia and after urinating for approximately 3 seconds, about 10–20 ml of urine is collected in a sterile container without interrupting the urine stream. Impurities are avoided in this way. Once the designated sample volume has been collected, the remaining urine can be released into the lavatory.

  • +

    What type of analyses require mid-stream urine?

    Mid-stream urine is particularly important for microbiological tests.

  • +

    Why is 24-hour urine collected?

    24-hour urine collection eliminates concentration fluctuations occurring throughout the day. It is therefore suitable for safely and reliably determining parameters which are subject to concentration fluctuations (circardian rhythm), such as catecholamine or creatinine clearance.

  • +

    What should be considered when collecting 24-hour urine?

    Collecting 24-hour urine starts by emptying the bladder in the lavatory. This time must be noted (e.g. 7 a.m.). 

    The next bladder emptying must be transferred to the collection container and, if necessary, the stabiliser is added (do not forget to mix). 

    Each subsequent urination must be collected until the following day. The collection stops from the time that was noted on the previous day (e.g. 7 a.m.). The bladder should be emptied shortly before in order to add this sample to the amount collected.
