Our at home health test box includes 2 sealed foil pouches with its results colour chart.
Each of them contains 1 desiccant and 1 test strip with 10 different parameters (urobilinogen, glucose, bilirubin, ketones, specific gravity, blood, pH, protein, nitrite and leukocytes)
These parameters helps you to screen potential health issues such as kidney failure, urinary tract infection, diabetes or liver disease.
How can you read the results?
The colour chart on the aluminium pouch will help you read and understand the results of the test strip.
Once you have immersed the 10 reagent areas for 2 seconds you will have to wait 60 more seconds to read results, except for leukocytes from 90 to 120 seconds.
We recommend having a clock and pen on hand so you can be as accurate as possible. It is important to respect time as the colour on the strips continuously change.
