Frequently asked questions
There are so many brands of urine diagnostic strips on the market, how can I be sure that Medi-Test will best suit my needs?
Medi-Test has been used by the NHS and many private organisations nationwide for well over 10 years. Medi-Test strips have been MDA evaluated and are manufactured in Germany to the highest standards so that you can have confidence they will provide accurate results every time.
Can Medi-Test be read with an analyser?
Yes, Medi-Test Combi-8 and Medi-Test Combi 10SGL varieties are specifically designed to be read with the Uryxxon Relax meter available from BHR. It is compact and user friendly with a touch screen interface. It is highly accurate and provides a print out of all results for record keeping purposes. It is ideal for healthcare professionals who have difficulty assessing urine strips by eye as well as departments wishing to reduce costs and time associated with sending samples away for analysis. Please call us for details.
Why Should I Test For Glucose With Medi-Test Glucose?
For persons with diabetes, the presence of glucose in the urine can be an indication that your diabetes may be out of control. The Medi-Test Glucose test will alert you and your Doctor to changes in your condition for which adjustments in your diet and/or medication may be needed. The Medi-Test Glucose test is the most sensitive test on the market allowing better control of glucose levels in diabetics. The Medi-Test Glucose test is sensitive down to 1.1mmol/l which is 5x more sensitive than a competitor.
What is the average shelf life of Medi-Test?
Medi-Test strips have a very long shelf-life even after opening the tubes, typically 16 months if the tube is closed after use. Some competitor strips have to be disposed of within 6 months or so after opening.
Will high ascorbic acid levels affect the results?
Due to the high resistance towards interferences by ascorbic acid, a second testing for sensitive parameters such as blood or glucose is unnecessary in most cases.

Medi-Test Combi 5N Warnings:
This pack of strips if much more economic than lots of other strips. There are some tests which just check for protein, other tests which check for different things, but these tests tend to cost about Â£10 for about 5 tests. With this pack you get 50 strips, and they test for 6 different things at the same time, so you save a lot of money compared to buying specific tests individually. There easy to use and have a good expiry date, which is useful when you have 50 of them. Would recommend this product.
Im so glad that Ive found this test strips at Chemist Direct. Despite the fact that its important to me to be able to see if I have a bladder infection or not, Im unable to get these on perscription anymore. Great value. Very pleased.
