AZO TEST STRIPS®
AZO TEST STRIPS® home UTI test can diagnose if you have a urinary tract infection. This information will allow you to take an active role with your physician in the management of your health.
Use at the first sign of a UTI: Urinary pain, burning, urgency, or frequency.
Simply wet the test pads by holding in your urine stream for 1-2 seconds. Read both test results in just 2 minutes.
Match the color of the test pads to the color blocks on the bottle label. First combination test available for home use: tests for both Leukocytes (white blood cells) and Nitrites for greater reliability. Physicians know the combination test is better than a nitrite-only test.
Store AZO TEST STRIPS® at room temperature 59° - 86° F (15° - 30° C) out of direct sunlight. For in vitro (external) diagnostic use.
Before you start the test, gather the materials you need:
Read all directions.
Simply follow these 3 easy steps...
Step 1: Apply urine to pads.
Begin urinating. After some urine has passed, hold the test pads in the urine stream for 1-2 seconds. Make sure both test pads are wetted. (If you prefer, you may collect your urine in a clean, dry cup. Then dip the test strip in the urine.)
Lay the strip, pads up, on a folded tissue.
Step 2: Wait for 2 minutes.
Step 3: Read test results.
At 2 minutes, compare the strip to the color chart on the bottle label.
Match the color of each test pad to the color chart for that test. Any amount of uniform pink color on the nitrite test pad is positive (abnormal). Pink spots or pink edges are not a positive result. A positive WBC test will give a dark tan to purple color. (Ignore any color change after you have read the test pads at 2 minutes).
Dispose of the strip with your household waste. Do not flush down the toilet.
