KOVA®: The Gold Standard for Urinalysis Quality, Accuracy and Safety.
Microscopic Urinalysis is a powerful diagnostic tool. The Kova® System addresses factors that contribute to imprecision in manual microscopic urinalysis. It standardises and streamlines the sample preparation process, so you reduce variables, improve worker safety, and increase the quality and consistency of results. The Kova® System includes slides, centrifuge tubes, petters and dipstick chemistry controls.
Quality Control from KOVA®

Go Glasstic™ for Fantastic Results.
Disposable Glasstic™ slides reduce pipetting errors and eliminate variables that can interfere with microscopic urinalysis. Glasstic™ slides feature self-contained chambers (wells) for precise volume control. For easier and faster counting, gridded (Neubauer pattern) slides are available. And with the unique Glasstic™ ten-chamber design, getting fantastic results can be cost effective too.
Capillary Action, Reproducable Precision.
Add a drop of sediment and a controlled volume of sediment moves into the chamber. The result is a consistent, homogenous suspension of the sample sediment, ready for microscopic urinalysis.
Self-Contained for Accuracy and Safety.
Glasstic™ slides are manufactured from clear plastic – not glass – to reduce the chance of breakage and make them safer to handle. Specimens are held in self-contained slide chambers, protecting samples from cross-contamination and leakage onto the lab bench or microscope stage.
