KOVA Unrinalysis

KOVA® Urinalysis Testing System: The Standard for Quality, Accuracy and Safety


When it comes to Urinalysis testing, KOVA provides industry-leading standards for quality and safety. Urinalysis is an important everyday diagnostic tool. KOVA products ensure high-quality Urinalysis results by standardizing Urinalysis procedures to reduce variables and improve worker safety.

Maximum Control for Reliable, Reproducible Results

From specimen collection to slide preparation, KOVA Urinalysis products help ensure samples are properly collected and handled for chemical tests using urine dipstick chemistry, confirmatory and pregnancy tests, and microscopic Urinalysis. They give you the control you need for reliable, reproducible results with minimal error and maximum efficiency.

  • Disposable components and quality control materials
  • Convenient disposable microscope slides with optional counting grid
  • Multilevel urine chemistry and microscopy controls in convenient lyophilized and liquid formats
  • Multilevel serum protein controls for refractometry

KOVA Urinalysis products are available with convenient packaging to meet specific laboratory needs and are ready to ship from a distributor near you.

KOVA Products for Microscopy. Setting Industry Standards


The KOVA System includes specially engineered slides, sample tubes and controls for safe, reliable workflow standardization.

  1. Take your samples from the collection cup to the centrifuge with KOVA Super Tubes.
  2. Isolate sediments with the KOVA Petter.
  3. Use the KOVA Petter to add and mix stain for visualization of cells and casts.
  4. Transfer a drop of each sample to a chamber on the KOVA Glasstic slide for standardized, volume-precise microscopic analysis.

KOVA Urinalysis Controls Validate Performance for Consistency and Accuracy


For quality control, use KOVA controls to validate the performance of urine chemistry test strips and readers and to help focus microscopic sediment analysis. Choose the KOVA controls that best meet the needs of your lab.

KOVA Controls


  • KOVA-Trol is a stable human urine control for complete quality control of physical, chemical and microscopic examination of urine specimens. All constituents are stable for 7 days at 2-8°C and 30 days -20°C after reconstitution. KOVA-Trol is available in 3 levels to monitor the entire decision ranges for urine strip chemistries. Values are assigned for visual and instrument reading on all major systems.
  • KOVA Liqua-Trol is a ready-to-use liquid control for complete quality control of physical and chemical examination of urine specimens. Liqua-Trol is available with or without microscopics. Liqua-Trol has 30-day room temperature stability. Values are assigned for visual and instrument reading on all major systems.
  • KOVA Stain is a modified Sternheimer-Malbin stain that facilitates differentiation and enhances visualization of formed elements in urine sediment.
  • KOVA REFRACTROL SP tri-level control provides 3 levels of serum protein control solutions for use in refractometry.

Maximum Quality Control Information with KOVA-Trol

For maximum quality control information for Urinalysis testing, choose the KOVA-Trol line of lyophilized controls.

  • Human urine-based
  • Three levels: High Abnormal (with or without urobilinogen values), Low Abnormal with microalbumin and creatinine and Normal with hCG
  • Extensive value assignments include individual visual readings, instrument strip readings and confirmatory tests
  • Stability: 18 months from date of manufacture for abnormal levels, 27 months for normal levels; after reconstitution, 7 days refrigerated, one month frozen

Maximum Ease of Use with KOVA Liqua-Trol

Ready-to-use KOVA Liqua-Trol controls save time, improve consistency and yield more consistent results.

  • Realistically simulate patient samples
  • Available with or without microscopics
  • Two levels: Normal and Abnormal
  • Two sizes: Easy-to-use 15 mL squeeze vial; 120 mL vial with twist-off cap (microscopic elements included)
  • Extensive value assignments include individual visual readings, instrument strip readings and confirmatory tests
  • Stability: Up to 18 months from date of manufacture; 30 days open-vial, room temperature

KOVA Controls Make it a Complete System

KOVA controls are part of a complete system for Urinalysis that includes everything you need for consistency in sample preparation, including sample collection cups and tubes. KOVA controls are available with convenient packaging and trial sizes to meet specific laboratory needs and are ready to ship from a distributor near you.
