Fueron procesadas 258 muestras de orina obtenidas por micción espontánea y como método de referencia se utilizó el recuento de unidades formadoras de colonias por mililitro de orina inoculada en placa de Petri con medio CLED. Se obtuvo 92,31 % de coincidencia entre los 2 métodos y una sensibilidad y especificidad de 79,00 y 96,95 %, respectivamente. El nivel de sensibilidad alcanzado se afectó por aspectos no relacionados directamente al equipo. Los altos valores logrados de especificidad y de coincidencia con el método de referencia favorecen su aplicación en la realización de urocultivos, posibilitando descartar en 4 ó 5 h las muestras de orina negativas y centrar el trabajo y los recursos en las positivasThe use of equipment Mycrob-1000 in detecting urinary infections in 4 hours in a primary health care center is evaluated. Two hundred fifty eight urine samples obtained from spontaneous miction were processed; the reference method was counting of colony-forming units per urine millimeter inoculated in Petri plaque in CLED medium. The coincidence rate between both methods was 92,31, with sensitivity and specificity rates of 79,00% and 96,95% respectively. The level of sensitivity was affected by factors not directly dependent on the equipment. High values of specificity and of coincidence achieved by this equipment in relation to the reference method facilitates its use in urine culture, making possible to differentiate negative urine samples in 4 or 5 hours and to focus work and resources on positive samples <div style="margin:5em 0"> <a href="http://reservationsystem.info/"> <img src="http://journaldatabase.info/reservation/reserv.jpg" alt="Why do you need a reservation system?" /> </a>    <a href="http://accounts.worldsoft-wbs.info/?wslanguage=en"> <img src="http://journaldatabase.info/aaa/internet-solutions.jpg" alt="Save time & money - Smart Internet Solutions" /> </a> </div> </div> <div id="right"> <div style="text-align: right; height: 3em"> <!-- AddThis Button BEGIN --> <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style addthis_32x32_style"> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_1"></a> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_2"></a> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_3"></a> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_4"></a> <a class="addthis_button_compact"></a> <a class="addthis_counter addthis_bubble_style"></a> </div> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ra-4dde47e430e00479"></script> <!-- AddThis Button END --> </div> <div class="brbroundbox"> <h2><span class="sprite-my_list">My list</span></h2> <div class="boxcontent"> <div id='my-list'></div> <div id='my-list-download' style='display:none'> <a href='/download/mylist' title='Download the list for future use'>Download the list</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="brbroundbox"> <h2>You may be interested in:</h2> <div class="boxcontent"> </div> </div> </div> <div style="clear:both;"></div> </div><br /> </div><!--page --> </div> <div id="general_footer"> © 2006-2013 journaldatabase.org; © 2014-2015 journaldatabase.info </div> </div> </body> </html>
