Urine Glucose Testing Strips are used for detecting the presence of glucose in Urine.
If there is high level of glucose in blood it is likely that urine too will have presence of glucose in it. Simply dip the strip in a urine sample, wait for 30 seconds and if the colour changes it indicates presence of glucose. Comparison of the changed colour with the shade card on the bottle provides a semi-quantitaive result. Extremely easy to use, even suitable for self-testing.
The use of urine glucose testing strips is acknowledged as a modern screening method in medical practice. With these non-invasive tests important information on the health status of patients is rapidly obtained.
Results appear in 30 seconds (except Leucocytes at 2 minutes) facilitating the decision on further diagnostic and therapeutic action.
Further time and cost-intensive investigations can often be avoided if the test strip result is negative, together with clinical assessment.
