The Litmus® Urinalysis Reagent Strips (Urine) are for single use in professional near-patient (point-of- care) and centralized laboratory locations. Refer to kit box label for the specific analyte(s) listed, and compare to the appropriate analyte(s) and color blocks on

Urine undergoes many changes during states of disease or body dysfunction before blood composition is altered to a significant extent. Urinalysis is a useful procedure as an indicator of health or disease, and as such, is a part of routine health screening. The Urinalysis Reagent Strips (Urine) can be used in general evaluation of health, and aids in the diagnosis and monitoring of metabolic or systemic diseases that affect kidney function, endocrine disorders and diseases or disorders of the urinary tract.
