Negative Urinalysis Strip Results vs. Urine Culture

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.
