In urine reagent strips (URS), enzyme reaction are adopted to detect different compounds in urine specimen.

Urinalysis strips, also called Urine Reagent strips (URS), are dip-and-read style of chemical reagent strips, which are used to qualitatively evaluate the concentrations of the chemical components urine specimen, such as urine glucose, bilirubin etc up to 11 parameters, which are indicators of the health conditions of human body.
Test results of medical urine strips may provide information regarding the status of carbohydrate metabolism, kidney function, and acid-base balance etc.
Each test strip consists of a plastic strip attached with different reaction pads. The reaction pads employs a solid-phase chemistry system, which uses highly specific enzyme reactions to develop different colors corresponding to the concentrations of the tested compounds in urine. By comparing the developed colors with the color chart, the concentrations can be decided.
