Fast-Read® 102

The FAST READ 102® system improves the standardization of microscopic urinalysis and provides precision and reproducibility 
to guarantee constant readings which wiII not be influenced by variations of techniques among different operators.

FAST READ 102® is made of a slide which is protected by an optically transparent film, with 10 independent chambers containing a 
standard volume of 7 µL. After dispensing the sample on the slide application area and thanks to a capillary mechanism, the sediment 
becomes homogeneously distributed in the reading chamber. Each chamber is fitted with its  own system for the collection of excess urine 
to prevent any possible contamination.
Furthermore FAST READ 102® slide allows easy identification of the sample by using the numbers printed on the sides.

The BVS100 device is manufactured in METHACRYLATE: rigid, transparent, resistant to atmospherics agents, it replaces the 
glass in every its applications reaching high temperatures (lower than 90-100 °C).

CALCULATION METHOD FOR CELLS / µL IN URINARY SEDIMENT

FAST READ 102® is a disposable plastic device composed of 10 counting chambers. Each device allow to analyze 10 samples.
Each room contains a GRID composed of 10 SQUARES divided into 16 smaller squares (called SECTORS).
One advantage of using FAST-READ is to determine easily the specimen’s number of cells per µL
1.  Perform the count on a centrifuged fresh urine sample, after decantation
2.  Gently resuspend the sediment
3.  Using a pipette, introduce the sample into the well and examine under the microscope the area of the grid
4.  Count the number of cellular elements within N squares 

Cell. / µl = (Σ cells counted in square N) x concentration factor x 10
                                                N

Concentration factor = Volume of sediment / Volume centrifuged urine
10: conversion from 0.1µl to 1µl

For uncentrifuged urine, don’t multiply the number of cells counted 
For the concentration factor.

METHOD OF CELL COUNTS FOR DILUTED SAMPLES (CELLS / ML)

After filling the counting chamber with the sample, proceed with the 
counting of the cells distributed in N squares.
Considering that the grid consists of 10 squares, each square has a 
Dimensions of 1 x 1 mm, a depth of 0.1 mm and a volume of 0.1 µl, 
the formula for determining the concentration of cells (cells / ml ) is:

Cells / ml = (Σ cells counted in square N) x dilution factor x 104
                                              N
 
104  = conversion 0.1 µl in 1 ml
Pay attention to the cells on the edges, you should only count those 
on either side, to avoid over or under counting risk.
In the example showns, we perform the cell counting of a sample 
diluted 100 times:
N = 5 (number of squares considered for counting) cells counted in 
5 square = 67
Dilution factor = 102
[Cells / ml] = (67/5) x 102  x 104  = 13.4 x 106
 

This product fulfils the requirements of Directive 98/79/EC on in vitro diagnostic medical devices
