Our New Urinalysis Machine

Basic Pet Care is pleased to announce the acquisition of the latest technology in diagnostic lab equipment. The new Idexx Sediview analyzer means that we can do the urinalysis in house, with results in 15 minutes, while you wait. More importantly, we can have the urine sediment analyzed while the specimen is still fresh, instead of waiting for it to be examined in the lab. Our innovative new machine uses Facial Recognition Technology to take and interpret dozens of photographs of each sample, identifying & labeling crystals, bacteria, epithelial cells, plus red & white blood cells. It is able to identify delicate pathological structures called casts that often break apart during transit to the lab. The urinalysis is considered to be one of the most important tests to run on a twice yearly basis. Remember to bring in a specimen so that we can include it in your pet’s regular exam!
