Urinalysis Reagent Strips

For rapid detection of multiple analytes in human urine.

  • Description
  • Specifications

    The Urinalysis Reagent Strips (Urine) are firm plastic strips onto which several  separate reagent areas are affixed. The test is for the qualitative and semi-quantitative  detection of one or more of the following analytes in urine: Ascorbic acid, Glucose,  Bilirubin, Ketone (Acetoacetic acid), Specific Gravity, Blood, pH, Protein, Urobilinogen,  Nitrite and Leukocytes.  


    Urine undergoes many changes during states of disease or body dysfunction before  blood composition is altered to a significant extent. Urinalysis is a useful procedure as  an indicator of health or disease, and as such, is a part of routine health screening. The  Urinalysis Reagent Strips (Urine) can be used in general evaluation of health, and aids  in the diagnosis and monitoring of metabolic or systemic diseases that affect kidney  function, endocrine disorders and diseases or disorders of the urinary tract.


    Allow the strip, urine specimen, and/or controls to reach room temperature  (15-30ºC) prior to testing. 

    1. Remove the strip from the closed canister and use it as soon as possible.  Immediately close the canister tightly after removing the required number of strip(s).  Completely immerse the reagent areas of the strip in fresh, well-mixed urine and  immediately remove the strip to avoid dissolving the reagents. See illustration 1  below. 

    2. While removing the strip from the urine, run the edge of the strip against the rim of  the urine container to remove excess urine. Hold the strip in a horizontal position  and bring the edge of the strip into contact with an absorbent material (e.g. a paper  towel) to avoid mixing chemicals from adjacent reagent areas and/or soiling hands  with urine. See illustration 2 below. 

    3. Compare the reagent areas to the corresponding color blocks on the canister label  at the specified times. Hold the strip close to the color blocks and match carefully.  See illustration 3 below. 

    Note: Results may be read up to 2 minutes after the specified times.
