PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Albumin is normally present in the urine in very small quantities or is not detectable. A high albumin level reflects dysfunction of the filtering function of the kidneys. Glucose or triglyceride (fat) concentration and a history of diabetes or hypertension are factors that promote the urinary excretion of albumin.

The M-Albu-Check-1 Strip test by PHARMA Southern Africa is a rapid immunochromatographic test to qualitatively determine albumin in the urine. In less than 10 minutes, it is possible to detect abnormal albumin concentrations in the urine.

WHEN SHOULD THE TEST BE PERFORMED?

The test should preferably be conducted with the first urine of the morning.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO IF THE RESULT IS POSITIVE?

If the result is positive, it means that the test has detected more than 20 mg/L of albumin in your urine. This result may be a temporary change in your physiological state.

Repeat the test several days later. If the positive result is confirmed, consult your physician and show him/her the test and leaflet.

INCLUDED IN KIT

A sealed aluminum pouch containing:

  • 1 strip test and 1 desiccant pouch (Only open the protective pouch when you are ready to use the test. The desiccant pouch should not be used).
  • 1 plastic cup for urine sample collection
  • 1 instructions leaflet

(Material required but not provided: Timer)

HOW TO USE

  1. Collect a little urine in the supplied plastic cup (urine sample height: between 1 cm and 1.5 cm in the cup).
  2. Tear the protective pouch (from the notch) and remove the strip only, holding it by the grip end. Dispose of the small desiccant pouch.
  3. Dip the strip vertically in the cup containing your urine sample, placing it in the notch provided for that purpose. (Fig. 1) during 5 to 10 seconds. WARNING: THE URINE LEVEL MUST NOT EXCEED THE HORIZONTAL BLUE LINE PRINTED ON THE STRIP UNDER THE SMALL ARROWS.
  4. Place the strip horizontally on a flat dry surface and allow the reaction to occur.
  5. Read the result after 5 to 10 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 15 minutes.
