Siemens Ictotest Reagent tablets and Mats for Urinalysis used to test for presence Bilirubin in urine. Testing for bilirubin is an important finding in the evaluation of liver function. Ictotest tablets are for in vitro diagnostic use by medical professionals. 100/BX. Price per box.
Chemical principles of the procedure: The reaction is based on the coupling of a unique solid diazonium salt with bilirubin in an acid medium to give the blue or purple reaction.
The Ictotest tablets, based on the diazotization reaction, are utilized as a confirmatory assay for the presence of urinary bilirubin when a frontline test (i.e. urine strip or another semi-quantitative method) has provided a positive bilirubin result. The Ictotest reagent tablets can be used to rule-out the presence of interfering substances that may cause a false positive result.
RESULTS: Results with Ictotest Reagent Tablets are negative if no blue or purple color develops on the mat within 60 seconds. If a blue or purple color develops on the mat or under the tablet within 60 seconds, the result is positive.
