Established quality – proven to perform

Urine reagent strips are a useful tool for investigating, diagnosing and screening diseases immediately. Reliable and precise results are important, since adulterated results can lead to false negative results or re-testing of patients.

Roche’s unique test strip technology is used for visual test strips and for all instrument test strips.

Benefits

 

Accuracy

  • Combur-Test® strip detects even low concentrations of glucose and erythrocytes/hemoglobin (5 – 10 Ery/mL) in the presence of vitamin C1.

Efficiency 

  • Avoidance of retesting and false-negative results in glucose and blood even with high levels of ascorbic acid (up to 400 mg/L) due to an inbuilt iodate impregnated mesh layer.

Safety

  • Nylon mesh sealing technology prevents interference from glued components
  • Test area colours are prevented from over flowing to other pads due to an absorbent paper
  • Colour compensation pad reduces the risk of false results with strong intrinsic urine coloration

Easy strip handling

  • Facilitation of analysis with a consistent reading time of 60 seconds for all parameters
  • Advanced and hygienic strip handling with vertical colour scale
