Standardization of isothermal microcalorimetry in urinary tract infection detection by using artificial urine
World Journal of Urology, 07/31/2012
Bonkat G et al. – Isothermal microcalorimetry (IMC) allows rapid detection of urinary tract pathogens (UTP) in artificial urine. Clearly, different heat flow patterns enable accurate pathogen differentiation. UTP detection after only 4 h is realistic. The rapid detection of UTP tested in standardized artificial urine proves the diagnostic potential of IMC.
