Nephrology: Predict Urinary Tract Infection and to Estimate Causative Bacterial Class in a Philippine Subspecialty Hospital

Urinary tract infection diagnosis by urine culture can be time- and labor- consuming. In the National Kidney and Transplant Institute, up to 75% of urine culture samples sent to the laboratory yield no growth or insignificant growth. A rapid and reliable screening method to rule out bacterial UTI could reduce culture workload, turnaround time of negative results and also unnecessary antibiotic prescription. Sysmex UF-1000i is urine flow cytometry analyzer which is capable of quantifying urine particles including bacteria and leukocytes. We evaluated the UF-1000i performance for ruling out UTIs and its bacterial scattergram feature to estimate the causative bacterial group, using standard urine culture results as reference method. Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common medical problem and may range from asymptomatic bacteriuria to severe infection that can lead to serious complications when left untreated. Women are more likely to be affected than men. Specific subpopulations are at increased risk of UTI, including infants and children, pregnant women, diabetic and immunocompromised patients, the elderly and those with underlying urologic abnormalities. Thus, prompt diagnosis is important for proper and timely management.
