The study was a prospective, paired, post-test only design utilising self-controls and two factors, namely the use or absence of 70% isopropyl alcohol for skin preparation prior to finger-prick to obtain a capillary blood sample and the use of the first or second drop of capillary blood for reagent strip

use 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine and diisopropylbenzene dihydroperoxide.
Since the presence of any eosinophils in the urine is an abnormal finding, it is theoretically possible to have a negative leukocyte esterase reaction by reagent strip
with clinically significant numbers of eosinophils present.
Since specific gravity is used clinically as a measure of the concentrating ability of the kidney, reagent strip
results are useful.
Bayer Diagnostics, which is sponsoring the CHECK-UP program, will supply at no cost, the Unity Health Centers with Multistix PRO Reagent Strips

With the introduction of these two tests, Chronimed now offers 14 different reagent strip
Nasdaq: CHMD), today said that it again plans to suspend all shipments of the Quick Check Reagent Strip

15) Various studies have confirmed the performance of the reagent strip
and shown that the number of false-positive and false-negative protein test results was significantly reduced by using the ratio.
The shortfall in Quick Check sales was due to a voluntary shipment hold by our reagent strip
supplier pending final and conclusive results of an FDA standards test on the product.
In contrast, reagent strips
measure ionic strength and are not affected by protein, glucose, or contrast agents.
