Reagents and Performance Characteristics

Based on the dry weight at the time of impregnation, the concentrations given may vary within manufacturing tolerances. The following table below indicates read times and performance characteristics for each parameter. The sensitivities are based on visual read studies.

Reagent Read
Time
Composition Description
Glucose
(GLU)
30
seconds
glucose oxidase; peroxidase; potassium iodide; buffer; non-reactive ingredients Detects glucose as low as 50-100 mg/dl.
Bilirubin
(BIL)
30
seconds
2,4-dichloroaniline diazonium salt; buffer and non-reactive ingredients Detects bilirubin as low as 0.4-1.0 mg/dl.
Ketone
(KET)
40
seconds
sodium nitroprusside; buffer Detects acetoacetic acid as low as 2.5-5 mg/dl.
Specific Gravity
(SG)
45
seconds
bromthymol blue indicator; buffer and non-reactive ingredients; poly (methyl vinyl ether/maleic anhydride); sodium hydroxide. Determines urine specific gravity between 1.000 and 1.030. Results correlate with values obtained by refractive index method within ± 0.005.
Blood
(BLO)
60
seconds
3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB); diisopropylbenzene dihydroperoxide; buffer and non-reactive ingredients Detects free hemoglobin as low as 0.018-0.060 mg/dl or 5-10 Ery/mcl in urine specimens with ascorbic acid content of < 50 mg/dl.
pH 60
seconds
methyl red sodium salt; bromthymol blue; non-reactive ingredients Permits the quantitative differentiation of pH values within the range of 5-9.
Protein
(PRO)
60
seconds
tetrabromophenol blue; buffer and non-reactive ingredients Detects albumin as low as 7.5-15 mg/dl.
Urobilinogen
(URO)
60
seconds
p-diethylaminobenzaldehyde; buffer and non-reactive ingredients Detects urobilinogen as low as 0.2-1.0 mg/dl.
Nitrite
(NIT)
60
seconds
p-arsanilic acid; N-(l-naphthyl) ethylenediamine; non-reactive ingredients Detects sodium nitrite as low as 0.05-0.1 mg/dl in urine with a low specific gravity and less than 30 mg/dl ascorbic acid.
Leukocytes
(LEU)
120
seconds
derivatized pyrrole amino acid ester; diazonium salt; buffer; non-reactive ingredients Detects leukocytes as low as 9-15 white blood cells Leu/mcl in clinical urine.

Directions for Use

Allow the strip, urine specimen, and/or controls to reach room temperature prior to testing.

  1. Remove the strip from the closed canister and use it as soon as possible. Immediately close the canister tightly after removing the required number of strips. Completely immerse the reagent areas of the strip in fresh, well-mixed urine and immediately remove the strip to avoid dissolving the reagents.

  2. While removing the strip from the urine, run the edge of the strip against the rim of the urine container to remove excess urine. Hold the strip in a horizontal position and bring the edge of the strip into contact with an absorbent material (e.g. a paper towel) to avoid mixing chemicals from adjacent reagent areas and/or soiling hands with urine.

  3. Compare the reagent areas to the corresponding color blocks on the color chart at the specified times. Hold the strip close to the color blocks and match carefully.

    Note: Results may be read up to 2 minutes after the specified times.

    Results may also be read on Mission U120 and Mission U500 Urine Analyzers. Refer to the analyzer's Instruction Manual for instructions on using the test strips with the analyzers.
