The agreement, signed by Hamad Al Hashemi, Managing Director, TechnoPark and Jun Dae Yul, Vice Chairman, KOVA
will facilitate exchange of science, technology and cooperation in information technology, bio-technology, advanced materials and environment between the two parties.
Blood and leukocyte esterase from the dipsticks and particle counting with the KOVA cell chamber and traditional sediment analysis (see below) were compared with results for RBCs and WBCs from the UF-100 and assessed for concordant/ discordant results.
MICROSCOPY WITH KOVA CELL CHAMBER AND SEDIMENT ANALYSIS
The KOVA system was selected as an alternative microscopic method because it provides a standardized quantitative procedure like the UF-100.
From the urine samples mentioned above, we counted six urine specimen five times in the KOVA cell chamber to assess precision.
We analyzed 252 urine samples and compared the results obtained with the UF-100 and the KOVA system.
