Urinalysis specialist Iris Diagnostics has launched its iQ200 Elite urine microscopy analysers to one of the largest clinical reference laboratories in Canada. The device uses digital imaging and Iris's auto-particle recognition software to classify urine particles into 12 categories and report the quantities of these particles in the sample. It is designed to save time by automating specimen preparation and image recognition and interpretation. Automated flow imaging analysis also provides a visual result as is found in standard microscopic analysis. The laboratory purchased the units from ESBE Scientific, Iris' Canadian distributor. Iris Diagnostics, based in Chatsworth, California, is a division of Iris International.
