CLINITEK Status ® Plus UACR Operator Training Program M Sonar Study
Learning Objectives This training module provides a comprehensive overview of the Clinitek Status ® Plus meter features and operating procedures including: System Overview System Setup Quality Control Participant Testing Cleaning
System Overview Microalbumin product is useful to test for microalbuminuria in patients with diabetes or hypertension in order to detect early kidney disease. Albumin, creatinine, and albumin-to-creatinine ratio results to help identify clinically relevant microalbuminuria. Results reported in 60 seconds Reportable range: Microalbuminuria is indicated at a ratio result of 30–300 mg/g Touch screen A/C Power or Rechargeable battery (Sonar study will use A/C power only)
System Overview The CLINITEK Status ® Plus Device 1. Analyzer 2. Power supply adaptor and AC power cord (Figure shows US version) 3. Test table with calibration bar 4. Test table insert 5. Paper roll
Getting Started LOCATION: The Analyzer should be on a level work surface in a temperature and humidity controlled environment. Ideal temperature: o C (72-79 o F). POWER SUPPLY: Connect the power supply to the power inlet located on the back left hand side of the Analyzer and connect the other end into an AC electrical wall outlet. Country specific adapter not included, available separately
Getting Started INSERT TEST STRIP TABLE: i) Hold table by the end opposite of the white calibration bar. DO NOT TOUCH the white calibration strip. ii) Insert with the white bar facing UP into the port on the front. iii) Push into analyzer JUST OVER HALF-WAY. DO NOT PUSH TABLE FULLY INTO ANALYZER. INSERT TEST TABLE INSERT: Place appropriate side of insert into strip table.
Getting Started PRINTER PAPER: i) Turn analyzer to back. ii) Open the printer compartment. This reveals the paper feeder. iii) Pull up on the grey lever on the LEFT side of the printer compartment. iv) Push down on the grey tab to expose the paper holder. v) Place the paper into the grey paper holder so the paper is fed out the bottom of the roll, and away from you.
