LW Scientific® I4P-POL7-GOUT is the GPIT kit for the I4 microscopes. The kit includes the simple polarizing kit plus the first order red compensating lens (whole wave plate), which allows easy identification of the specific crystals which cause arthritis. 

Gout is a type of arthritis caused by the buildup of uric acid in the blood, leading to joint inflammation. It results from needle-like Sodium Urate Crystals with strong birefringence. Pseudo-gout (rheumatoid) is due to Calcium Pyrophosphate Dehydrate Crystals (CPPD), which appear as small rods, squares, or rhomboids with weak birefringence.

By using a Uric Acid control slide for reference, users can identify the crystals in synovial fluid by observing the colour shift with the First Order Red Compensating Lens.

The Gout Kit is an economical and straightforward alternative to a fully polarizing microscope. When paired with the I4 Infinity microscope, it effectively identifies crystals in synovial fluid


  • Easy to use
  • Compatible with the I4 microscope
  • Much cheaper than a fully polarizing rheumatology microscope
  • Includes a Uric Acid control slide

*For viewing urine crystals only, the Simple Polarizing Kit is recommended
