Sedi-Tect™ Urine Preservative System
"Sedi-Tect™ features special urinary preservative tablets that maintain the formed elements found in urine sediment samples and the key diagnostic markers used in reagent strip (dipstick) testing. The time-release tablets dissolve and activate rapidly. Samples remain stable for up to 5 days and can be stored or transported at room temperature.
Sedi-Tect™ protects critical diagnostic indicators (WBCs, RBCs, casts, crystals, ova and bacteria) from lysis and decay by controlling micro organisms, osmolality and the pH. It is convenient for remote specimen collection sites, where delays of even a few hours can mean the difference between accurate and inaccurate results. Sedi-Tect™ also decreases the need for costly, time consuming repeat sampling.
Sedi-Tect™ comes complete with the urinary preservative tablets and is available in a variety of sizes. A patient identification label is affixed to each tube, vial and container. The ID labels contain ample space for writing the collection time, date person's name and specimen number. Optional affixed caution labels are available as is special packaging upon request.
NOTE: Sedi-Tect™ is not for use as a urine culture preservative. Use Cul-Tect™ or Bori-Vial™ for this purpose."
