2) Urinalysis dipsticks
are intended to be dipped into the patient's urine sample, fully immersing the reagent pads.
7% of platelet concentrates had 4+ and 3+ of glucose with dipstick
To overcome these problems, many alternative screening methods have been evaluated, including urine microscopy, chemical analysis using a dipstick
method, Gram staining, dipslide urine culture and bioluminescence.
To assess the suitability of RNA extracted from dipsticks
for determining the VP7 genotype, we first determined the VP7 G genotype of rotavirus in rotavirus-positive clinical samples from children hospitalized during May 15, 2005-May 15, 2006.
Note: Due to unknown quantities of residual oil draining back from engine components and cavities, re-marking of the dipstick
may not always be necessary.
, which can be used by non-professionals.
Detection of proteinuria in hospitalized hypertensive pregnant women by visual reading of dipsticks
, as is the usual office practice, has a high false-positive rate for true proteinuria ([greater than or equal to] 300 mg/L) with a PV+ (true positives/true plus false positives) of 24% for 1+, 53% for 2+, and 93% for 3+ or 4+.

The significance of asymptomatic microhematuria in men 50 or more years old: findings of a home screening study using urinary dipsticks
It has been believed that urine dipsticks
are useful tools for excluding the diagnosis of UTI based on their high negative predictive values (NPV).
