Welcome to a new era for urinalysis
With more than 3000 metabolites, urine is an extraordinary witness to our health. It gives an immediate snapshot of the body’s balance and can help detect and monitor a large variety of health information.

The data capture is noninvasive, effortless, hands-free and automatic. Each cartridge lasts three months and can easily be changed to meet all your needs.
