Multistix 10 SG Reagent Strips
Negative Means Negative
Multistix 10 SG urinalysis strips are an effective "rule-out" tool for patients with suspected UTI.
Negative Urinalysis Strip Results vs. Urine Culture
In 93% of cases, a negative Multistix 10 SG strip result for leukocyte and nitrite was confirmed negative by urine culture.
The number of false negative samples was significantly reduced when combining the leukocyte and nitrite urinalysis results.
False Negative Samples vs. Urine Culture*
*Further analysis confirmed that a large number of samples defined positive by urine culture did not show a WBC elevation, microscopically.
