What is the difference between Urinalysis 81002 & 81003? I know they are both without microscopy but which one is just the dipstick strip dipped the urine and which one is used with POCT machine? Thank you.

When it comes to UAs it is all about the method of analysis and the use of a microscope for further analysis. Non-automated testing (81002) is done by dipping the dipstick and comparing the color coded results to the key. Automated testing (81003) is done by inserting the dipstick into a machine to get a printout of the results.
