For glucose: enzymatic reaction - glucoseoxidase, peroxidase, chromogene
For ketones: sodium nitropruside in alkaline buffer
The colour of the glucose reaction zone shows the concentration of the glucose in the patients urine sample.
If yellow, the urine sample doesn’t include any glucose = healthy individual.
In case of presence of glucose, the reaction zone changes the colour to different shade of green colour – the colour scale is shown on each box.
The concentration of the glucose is as well indicated on the tube – either in mmol/l or mg/dl.
The presence of the ketones will be interpreted in the same manner, however the colour changes to violet in case of presence of the analyte.
