Regular screening and long-term follow-up of blood uric acid concentration are important for the detection of asymptomatic hyperuricemia. Asymptomatic hyperuricemia, if left untreated, can contribute to certain renal diseases and can lead to the development of primary and secondary gout.

UA Sure monitoring system

UA Sure is an accurate and cost effective whole blood test providing quantitative uric acid levels with fast results within 30 seconds. The system consists of a portable hand-held device with disposable strips. The blood sample is placed on the strip and measured outside the meter, eliminating internal cleaning and the risk of contamination. The large LCD screen displays the test results and the meter automatically stores the last 10 results, allowing test results kept in the memory to be recalled when needed.

A urinalysis is a routine examination of the urine. Urinalysis test strips are used for the rapid screening of urine for the chemical markers of various illnesses. These diagnostic reagent strips are an effective, low cost diagnostic aid in early detection of potential health problems. It is used by healthcare professionals, clinics and hospitals to initially screen for suspected and/or existing health conditions.

Easy to use, urine diagnostic reagent strips can provide early indications of developing health problems and identify potential abnormal functions requiring more extensive testing. Additionally, routine use is frequently recommended by healthcare professionals for monitoring certain existing and chronic health conditions.

The Combi urinalysis test strips are simple, easy to use reagent strips for the detection of key diagnostic chemical markers in human urine. They are plastic strips to which chemically specific reagent pads are affixed. The reagent pads react with the sample urine to provide a standardized visible colour reaction within 30 seconds. Compare the leukocyte test field after 60 seconds. The colour is then visually compared to the colour chart on the test tube to determine any abnormalities.

The strips are ready to use upon removal from the tube and the entire reagent strip is disposable. The test strips are packed 100 tests to a tube with a long shelf life. Each tube comes with a complete abstract on the chemical and biological properties of the test including a colour chart for rapid visual diagnosis.

Combi 4/6 have 6 test patches on every strip that test for Blood, Leucocytes, Protein, Glucose, Nitrite and Urobilinogen.

Combi 9 and Combi 10 have 10 test patches on every strip that test for Blood, Urobilinogen, Bilirubin, Protein, Nitrite, Ketones, Glucose, pH, Specific Gravity, Leucocytes.
