Reagents, Clinical Chemistry, Rapid Test, pH, Strip
Definition : Rapid-test clinical chemistry reagents that consist of paper strips treated with dyes that change color according to the proton concentration in a liquid media; the color of the paper is an indicator of a solution's pH. These reagents are used to determine the acid/base status and/or for semiquantitative pH measurement of solutions in clinical laboratory work, including urinalysis. Both wide-range (e.g., 1 to 14) and short-range, more specific (e.g., 6.0 to 8.5) reagent strips are available. The reagents are available either as individual strips or in rolls.
