Devicare announced today that they have conducted the first clinical trials of Lit-Control IUNICS successfully in the center attached to the University of the Balearic Islands.

These tests have been used to validate urine of 30 patients, the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of Lit-Control measures are similar to that of a laboratory pH meter and therefore sufficient to make a clinical pre-diagnosis of renal lithiasis.

These results demonstrate that Lit-Control can be a useful urinary pH control tool for patients with renal lithiasis, unlike pH test strips as recently demonstrated by Kwong et al. Urolithiasis 2013.
