For urine, a basic chemistry urinalysis (Multistix Pro 10LS reagent strips) was performed immediately upon receipt to measure protein, creatinine, blood, leukocytes, nitrite, glucose, ketone, pH, and specific gravity (Bayer Clinitek 500).
In particular, the dipstick brand Multistix, which is available in Australia, had inferior accuracy across the pH spectrum of only 54%., However the margin of error was small, so an inaccurate' dipstick result typically varied only 0.5 from that of the electrode monitor (15).
A strip test with multiple parameters (Multistix) was used for urinalysis.
A urine sample was obtained following the instructions for processing Bayer's Multistix strips.
Glycosuria was semiquantitatively assessed using a urine dipstick Multistix 8SG (Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Ltd, Camberley, [U.sub.K]).
Urine dip sticks (Bayer Multistix 10 SG Reagent Strips, Romeoville, IL) were read manually.
Glucose, pH and protein measurements were done by Multistix dipstick method.
On a urine dipstick (Multistix, Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Inc, Tarrytown, NY, USA), glucose concentration measured >2000 mg/dL [111 mmol/ L] with no ketones present.
Additionally, no charge is rendered for the use of malaria rapid diagnostic kits or urinalysis multistix donated through GPN.
Utility of the Multistix 10 SG[R] reagent strips in the diagnosis of peritonitis in peritoneal dialysis
During the last week of treatment, urinalysis was conducted on samples collected overnight using a Multistix 10 SG (Bayer, Pittsburg, PA) and Clinitek-500 urine chemistry analyzer (Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics, Erlangen, Germany).
Urine dipstick analysis (Multistix 8 SG; Bayer Corporation) was followed by centrifugation of the urine at 3000g for 10 min and microscopy examination of the urine sediment with an Olympus microscope.
