Multistix from Siemens are urine test strips designed to measure various parameters in the urine, including glucose, protein, ketones, blood, nitrite, leukocytes, pH and specific gravity. These parameters can help detect various health problems such as diabetes, kidney disease, urinary tract infections, and liver disease.
The Multistix are easy to use and require only a small amount of urine to give a result. The test strip is simply dipped in the urine and after a few seconds the color of the strip changes. After 1 minute you can read the result by comparing the color change with the color chart on the packaging.
The Multistix are reliable and sensitive, meaning they can detect even small amounts of the various parameters. This makes them ideal for use in healthcare, for example in hospitals, clinics or GPs.
