Ketostix Reagent Strips for Urinalysis 50 Strips

Ketostix is a product that is used for ketone detection. It detects ketones from your urine and is an alternative to blood testing. Ketostix changes colour depending on the level of ketones found in your urine. Colours range from beige to deep purple to display a level of ketones in your urine. Use Ketostix urine reagent test strips to monitor ketones to ensure the body is not using too much fat for energy.

Ketostix Urinalysis Features:

  • Test ketone levels quickly measure ketone level, which provides information on carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
  • Quick results: A fast, convenient test provides results in 15 seconds.
  • Easy to read: colour-changing strips provide results that are easy to read and decipher.
