Urine testing is a useful procedure as an indicator of health or disease as the composition of urine can change markedly when a wide variety of diseases or infections are present. Because urine testing is simple to carry out, it can be part of routine health screening in the home. The Family Health Screening Test can be used to give a general indication of health and helps in the detection of diseases and infections that can affect the kidneys, urinary tract, liver and heart. The pack contains six strips so that routine testing can be carried out at regular intervals. Check kidneys, urinary tract, liver and heart with 1 test.
How to use
1. Remove the strip from the sealed pouch, use it as soon as possible.
2. Hold the end of the strip farthest away from the test pads. Dip the test pads of the strip completely into fresh urine for 1-2 seconds and remove immediately. Run the edge of the strip against the rim/edge of the urine container to remove excess urine.
3. After removing the strip from your urine, immediately bring the edge of the strip into the contact with an absorbent material such as a paper towel. Lay the strip with the test pad(s) facing upwards and begin timing.
4. Read results. After the specified times shown on the colour chart, compare the colour of the test pads with the colour blocks on the colour chart. Hold the strip close to the colour blocks and match carefully.
Result may be read up to 2 minutes after the specified times.
Urine container and absorbent material not included.
