Urine Test Strips for Urinalysis in the Surgery and Laboratory
Urine test strips provide quick and reliable information regarding the presence of pathological, compositional changes during urinalysis. The procedure provides detection of increased glucose or protein concentrations within the sample. Evaluation of the parameter fields helps to draw conclusions on urinary tract diseases or to provide indications of other illnesses, such as the presence of diabetes mellitus or a hematuria. Urinalysis carried out through the use of test strips can be done anytime and anywhere, without the need for any special preparations and many times, without the need for an analysis device of any kind. With such a method, the results of the urinalysis are available within only a few minutes and help provide the doctor with a fast determination of the situation, as well as giving him the ability to immediately determine the appropriate treatment options. This is equally advantageous for both, doctors and their patients, as no additional appointments need to be made in order to review or discuss the results. Furthermore, the procedure is usually very simple, meaning that it can be carried out by any qualified staff member without the need for special training.
Test Fields Provide Insight on Respective Substance Concentrations
Urine strips are composed of plastic and provide multiple measurable parameters. The reactive zones react through contact with determined substances in the sample and display a characteristic colour response, which can be read and organised by a colour comparison scale that displays the corresponding substance concentrations. Depending on which disease symptom needs to be determined, the strips are equipped with different reactive fields. The most commonly detectable parameters in urine are pH, leukocytes, nitrite, protein, glucose, ketones, urobilinogen, bilirubin and blood. Some are additionally equipped with a zone for determining specific gravity, which allows the doctor to establish a conclusive assessment of the measurement results.
