Professional Reagent Area Information

This test is specific for glucose; no substance excreted in the urine other than glucose is known to give a positive result. In diluted urine containing less than 0.3mmol/L ascorbic acid, as little as 2.2mmol/L of glucose, may produce a colour change that might be interpreted as positive. If the colour appears somewhat mottled at the highest gluose concentrations, match the darkest colour to the colour blocks. Ascorbic acid concentrations of 3mmol/L or greater and/or high ketone concentrations (4mmol/L) may give false negatives for specimens containing small amounts of glucose (4-7mmol/L). The reactivity of the glucose test decreases as the SG of the urine increases. The reactivity may also vary with temperature. Small amounts of glucose are normally excreted by the kidney.These amounts are usually below the sensitivity of this test, but on occasion may produce a colour between the “Negative” and the 6mmol/L colour blocks, and that is interpreted by the instrument as positive.
