Reagents, Clinical Chemistry, Rapid Test, Urine, Single Analyte
Definition : Clinical chemistry reagents used to perform tests in a short period of time, typically several minutes (i.e., rapid tests), to determine pH and/or a specific chemical constituent in a sample of urine. These reagents are typically in tablets or impregnated in one or more areas of a paper strip (reagent strip) that undergo a color change when reacted with specific substances. Urinary rapid-test reagents are mostly used for determination of protein, albumin, glucose, ketone bodies, occult blood, bilirubin, or urobilinogen.
