The Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. Urine Reagent Strips (URS) for Urinalysis are firm plastic strips to which several different reagent areas are affixed. Depending on the product being used, Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. Urine Reagent Strips provide tests for Glucose, Bilirubin, Ketone (Acetoacetic acid), Specific Gravity, Blood, pH, Protein, Urobilinogen, Nitrite, Leukocytes, and Ascorbic Acid in Urine. Test results may provide information regarding the status of carbohydrate metabolism, kidney and liver function, acidbase balance, and bacteriurea.1,2 Please refer to the outside box and bottle label for the specific test parameters of the product you are using. The Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. Urine Reagent Strips are packaged along with a drying agent in a plastic bottle with a twist-off cap. Each strip is stable and ready to use upon removal from the bottle. The entire reagent strip is disposable. Results are obtained by direct comparison of the test strip with the color blocks printed on the bottle label. No calculations or laboratory instruments are required. Glucose: This test is based on a double sequential enzyme reaction. One enzyme, glucose oxidase, catalyzes the formation of gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide from the oxidation of glucose. A second enzyme, peroxidase, catalyzes the reaction of hydrogen peroxide with potassium iodide chromogen to oxidize the chromogen to colors ranging from blue-green to greenishbrown through brown and dark brown. Ketone: This test is based on the reaction of acetoacetic acid with sodium nitroprusside in a strongly basic medium. The colors range from beige or buff-pink color for a “Negative” reading to pink and pink-purple for a “Positive” reading.
