Diabur-Test 5000 - a new test strip for urinary sugar control in diabetic patients

Diabur-Test 5000 - a new test strip for urinary sugar control in diabetic patients

Deutsche Medizinische Wochenschrift 107(3): 97-100

Diabur-test 5000, a new test strip for estimation of urinary glucose, was compared with the hexokinase glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase method in more than 2500 urine samples. By combination of two test ranges glucose concentrations of up to 5% can be detected by the strip test. After a reading time of 2 minutes, very precise estimation of urinary glucose is possible in eight steps from negative to 5%. False estimations of more than one color step virtually do not occur. Ketone bodies, salicylic acid and several antibiotics do not influence the test strip. Ascorbic acid shows a slight influence only in concentrations above 40 mg/dl. This influence disappears with glucose concentrations of more than 0.5%. Good correlation with the reference method, wide range of readings and simple handling make the test strip suited for the laboratory and particularly for self control of diabetic patients.
