urinalysis reagent strips 11 panel (100 tests) screens for substances causing metabolic and kidney diseases, urinary tract infections and more urinalysis reagent strips 11 panel detects: protein, glucose, leukocytes, nitrite, urobilinogen, ph, blood, specific gravity, ketone-acetoacetic acid, bilirubin and ascorbic acid in urine product description: fda/clia waived easy-to-use urinalysis strips: dip and read - no additional instruments needed! rapid results: takes from 30 seconds to 2 minutes for results high quality color chart providing consistent, dependable readings cost effective: 100 strips per canister, at a great price instructions: collect a fresh urine sample in a clean, dry container preferably glass. first morning samples contain the highest concentration of target markers. remove one reagent strip from the bottle and immediately replace the container cap, minimizing the exposure of the remaining test strips to light and air. completely immerse the reagent pads of the strip in the urine sample and then remove immediately to avoid dissolving out the reagent pads. a red line will appear next to the control (c) region when the wick has absorbed sufficient urine while removing the reagent strip, run the edge of the strip against the rim of the specimen container to remove excess urine. hold the strip in a horizontal position to prevent possible cross contamination of chemicals located in adjacent reagent pads. place the cap back on and set the device on a flat level surface compare the color change of reagent pads to the corresponding color chart on the bottle label. read results according to the chart's time frame for each panel tested. read results in 10 minutes. results not valid if read after 1 hour discuss with your physician or healthcare provider and then discard the used reagent strip. results: each container of urinalysis reagent strips includes a color coded chart. the reactive color of each panel on the test strip is compared to the closest corresponding color on the result chart. the concentration level range for each chemical marker is indicated below each color block on the result chart. as with all tests dealing with color intensity or color matching, it is often recommended to obtain another person's interpretation of the test result. additional information glucose: the glucose reagent panel is specific for glucose; no substance other than glucose is known to give a positive result. the reactivity of the glucose test decreases as the specific gravity of the urine increases. reactivity may also vary with temperature. small amounts of glucose may normally be excreted by the kidneys, these amounts are usually below the sensitivity range of this test but on occasion may produce a color between the 'negative' and the 100/5 color block and may be interpreted by the observer as positive. glycosuria is the condition of glucose in urine. normally the filtered glucose is reabsorbed by the renal tubules and returned to the blood by carrier molecules. if blood glucose levels exceed renal threshold levels, the un-transported glucose will spill over into the urine. main cause: diabetes mellitus ketones: this test reacts with acetoacetic acid in urine. it does not react with acetone or b‑hydroxybutyric acid. some high specific gravity/low ph urines may give reactions up to and including 'trace'. normal urine specimens usually yield negative results with this reagent. false positive results (trace or less) may occur with high pigmented urine specimens or those containing large amounts of levodopa metabolites. ketone bodies such as acetoacetic acid, beta-hydroxybutyric acid, and acetone can appear in urine in small amounts. these intermediate by-products are associated with the breakdown of fat. causes: diabetes mellitus, starvation, diarrhea. blood: the significance of the 'trace' reaction may vary among patients, and clinical judgment is required for assessment in an individual case. development of green spots (intact erythrocytes) or a green color (free hemoglobin / myoglobin) on the reagent area within 60 seconds indicates the need for further investigation. blood is often found in the urine of menstruating females. this test is highly sensitive to hemoglobin and thus compliments the microscopic examination. this test is equally sensitive to myoglobin as to hemoglobin. the sensitivity of this test may be reduced in urines with high specific gravity. captopril may cause decreased reactivity. false positives reactions can be caused by certain oxidizing contaminants such as hypochlorite ‑ microbial peroxiclase associated with urinary 'tract infection may also give a false positive reaction. levels of ascorbic acid normally found in urine do not interfere with this test. hemoglobinuria is the presence of hemoglobin in the urine. causes: hemolytic anemia, blood transfusion reactions, massive bums, renal disease hematuria is the presence of intact erythrocytes. almost always pathological. causes:
