Middlesex GB
Easy to use and very reassuring when you can see ph level is good. Cap rather difficult to remove but realise has to be tight. Also shame the shelf life when it has been opened is only a month.

I was an RN for 38 years so I could figure this out. For a lay person I think it would be more confusing to interpret. The cap is pretty hard to pry off with arthritis. I prefer Uristix after trying these. But I didn't want the 10 tests.

They are easy to use at home, as a long term sufferer of water infections I use them regularly. For me personally and it may not be the case for everyone but when I get symptoms I check if only leukocytes are present I can usually treat it at home but if it shows nitrites are present as well I always need antibiotics.

I have recurring water infections, for which I am receiving treatment, and it is handy for me to be able to do a quick check before receiving my treatment . Would recommend if you even if you just want to check the PH level of your urine. Which was the reason I started purchasing them.

Useful product to keep around the house just in case. Exactly the same as the doctors use and same results too, as tested myself and then had doctor test on same day, with same result. This is good as next time I'll know before I make an appointment whether I really do need to go to the docs or not.

Urinalysis for Urine Infections

The following 5 reagents are fixed to each urine test strip.

  • pH Level (acidic, neutral or alkaline)
  • Blood (red blood cells, possible sign of infection)
  • Leukocytes (white blood cells, possible sign of infection)
  • Nitrites (nitrates reduced to nitrites are a possible sign of infection)
  • Protein (indicative of kidney disease)

The presence of significant amounts of any of these elements in the urine is considered a good marker for urinary tract infection. The combination of all three: blood, leukocytes, and nitrites, is considered by medical professionals to be a very strong indicator of infection.

You can also monitor pH and progress as you take Waterfall D'Mannose . Whether you intend to use antibiotics or an alternative remedy for urinary tract infection, our urine test strips allow you to monitor the state of your urine.

How to use Urine Test Strips - Video

Full instructions on how to use our urine test strips as well as details about the test elements and reagents are shipped with the product and available in the adjacent video.

We also provide an easy-to-understand colour guide for those using the test strips at home.

For more detailed advice about interpreting the test results, private individuals should consult an expert such as a doctor or urologist.


Before you begin using the test strips, familiarise yourself with the position of the 5 reagents on the test strips so you'll know where to look for the elements you are measuring. For new or home users, testing for each element is best done on individual test strips, at least until you are familiar with the process.

  1. Remove the external polythene seal wrapper from the packet of test strips.
  2. Urinate into a clean container.
  3. Remove a strip and close the container tightly.
  4. Immerse the test strip into the urine for 2 seconds.
  5. Immediately tap the test strip on the side of the container to remove any excess urine and prevent cross-contamination of the reagents.

Urine Test Results

urine test results

Testing the pH of Urine

Within 30 seconds of immersing the test strip into your urine, check the reagent second from the handle end of the strip. A urine pH of 6.8 - 7.0 is considered healthy. If the reagent indicates orange, its probably too acidic to decelerate bacterial growth. If it indicates deep green remember that high alkalinity may also irritate the bladder as much as high acidity. Urine pH can be adjusted by making dietary changes.

Testing for Protein - Proteinuria

Within 30 seconds of immersing the test strip into your urine, check the middle reagent. Any greenish - turquoise colouration indicates the presence of protein. This could mean kidney infection, kidneys not working efficiently, kidney disease, or kidney damage caused by high blood pressure, diabetes, trauma, medications or toxins. See a medical professional.

Testing for Blood in Urine - Haematuria

Within 60 seconds of immersing the test strip into your urine, check the bottom reagent for red blood. A green reagent indicates the presence of red blood in your urine, or Haematuria. It may have been visible in the sample if your urine was a reddish / brown color. Blood appearing in the urine is usually caused by E.Coli infecting the bladder, but is also a symptom of cancer. See your Doctor and take measures to prevent further infection by maintaining a healthy bladder and urinary tract.

Testing for Nitrites in Urine - Nitrituria

Within 60 seconds of immersing the test strip into your urine, check the second reagent from the top. Gram negative bacteria that cause UTI have enzymes that convert nitrates into nitrites. A positive test for nitrites (any shade of pink) in the urine indicates UTI is present.

Testing for Leucocytes in Urine - Leukocyturia

Finally, turn your attention to the top indicator to check for the presence of Leucocytes in your urine (Leukocyturia). Leukocyte Esterase is an enzyme of white blood cells. A reagent indicating pink within 2 minutes of immersing the strip in your urine indicates the presence of Leucocytes. The most common cause for Leucocytes in urine is a bacterial infection of the kidneys, bladder or urinary tract.

The guidelines above are greatly simplified. For professional interpretation of the results, see your doctor or other medical expert. Remember that you should not make a diagnosis based on one test result. In doubtful cases, it is therefore advisable to repeat the test after discontinuing a particular drug. Large amounts of ascorbic acid in the urine can produce artificially low to false-negative results for blood and nitrites.

Prolonging the life of Urine Test Strips

  • To avoid contamination, do not touch the reagent squares.
  • Do not remove the desiccant package which helps prevent moisture entering the container.
  • Immediately reseal the container after removing a test strip.
  • Test strips will become defective once exposed to air for thirty minutes.
  • Once opened, use within 3 months

Protein in Urine, what does it mean?

The presence of protein in urine often indicates kidney involvement in the infection. People prone to cystitis are advised to keep a pack of urine test strips handy in the house. Urine infections have to be attended to quickly before they lead to a kidney infection. Knowledge and swift action can be your best preventative. Kidney Infection (Pyelonephritis) may start with bladder symptoms. However, once the infection has spread to the kidney, the following signs of more severe illness usually result.

Symptoms of Kidney Infection

  • Back pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Flu like symptoms
  • Confusion (especially in the elderly)
  • Feeling seriously unwell.

Kidney infections require immediate medical attention.

Monitoring Urine pH

With UTI Test 5V® urine test strips, you can check your urine pH. Monitoring the pH of your urine is an important factor in getting control of urinary tract infection because of the way that most bacteria feed on the acids in urine. Contrary to popular belief, taking anything that acidifies your urine such as cranberry juice or tablets, or Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbic Acid, will not kill the bacteria that cause urinary tract infections. Rather, the bacteria will feed on the acids, releasing toxins as they metabolise. The toxins inflame the bladder tissue, burning off the bladder lining allowing the bacteria to attach themselves deeper in the bladder lining.

While bladder or urinary tract infection in men is far less common than in women, or in children, UTIs in men are often considered more serious because of the possibility of a resulting prostate infection or inflammation of the prostate gland (Prostatitis).

There is another aspect to monitoring the pH of the urine - when fighting almost all bladder infections, urinary tract infections, or kidney infections, an alkaline urine pH of between 7.5 and 8 can slow down bacterial metabolism and rate of division. This is usually enough to allow alternative remedies such as Waterfall D-Mannose to flush away the bacteria causing a urinary tract infection or early stage kidney infection.

Urinary tract infections, or rather the bacteria that cause the urine infections, often become antibiotic resistant. Monitoring of the urine for infection is particularly important for men prone to urinary tract infection, such as spinal injury patients, or people who have less than normal bladder control because of debilitating illness. Spinal injury patients are also more prone to kidney infection, because they may miss the signs of the urine infection until it progresses to become a kidney infection. When you cannot sense symptoms of UTI such as burning and bladder cramps, UTI Test 5V® provides an alternative method.
