Multistix 10 SG Reagent Urinalysis Strips test for glucose, bilirubin, ketone, specific gravity, blood, pH, protein, urobilinogen, nitrite and leukocytes. The strips may be read visually or instrumentally, using the approprate Urine Chemistry Analyzers.
Use a fresh urine specimen, less than 4 hours old, and place it into a clean, dry container. Do not centrifuge. Test within one hour. If not possible, refrigerate and restore to room temperature before testing
Remove one strip from the bottle and immediately replace the cap tightly. Briefly (no longer than a second) immerse all reagent areas into the specimen. Wipe off excess urine on the rim of the container.
Hold strip in vertical position. Refer to the bottle label for specific reagent areas on the test strip. Compare the test areas with the color scale on the label. Proper reading times are critical for optimal results. See each reagent time as indicated on bottle label. Coloration appearing only along the edges of the test, or developing after more than two minutes, has no diagnostic value. The reagent strips must be kept in the bottle with the cap tightly closed to maintain reagent reactivity. Please refer to bottle label for specific reading time for each reagent.
As with all laboratory tests, definitive diagnostic or therapeutic decisions should not be based on any single test result or method.
Do not remove desiccants from the bottle.
Store at temperature between 36-86°F (2-30°C).
Restore to room temperature before use.
Store the bottle out of direct sunlight.
Do not use after expiration date.
Do not touch any reagent area.
