Urine-test for visual evaluation. Test-strips for
semi-quantitative determination of albumin and creatinine in urine,
for early diagnosis of micro-albuminuria.
Modern urine-analysis through urine test-strips is best suited to
regularly obtain the first impression of a patient's health.
Because the urine sample is easily obtained, and can be tested and
Only when specific parameters like protein, nitrite, pH,
erythrocytes or leukocytes show pathologic values, for more exact
evaluation of the microscopic sediment-count and growing of
urine-cultures, a complete urine-status must be prepared, meaning
the sample should be subjected to continuing diagnostic. With
negative test-strip result – and this is normally the case – this
time-, labor-, and cost-intensive examinations can be foregone in
clinically inconspicuous patients.
The single test-strip parameters show initial distinguishing

Ascorbic acid-stabilization of Bayer urine test-strips makes
re-testing of especially sensitive parameters like blood and
glucose mostly unnecessary.
