Proven quality1,2,3,4


The unique construction technology of the Combur-Test strips avoid interference from components like glue and largely eliminate the interference of ascorbic acid, providing excellent results. Low instances of false-negatives minimize the testing time and increase the cost efficiency. The Combur-Test® strip technology offers an immediate and reliable result largely unaffected by ascorbic acid in the sample. It reduces unnecessary retesting and helps prevent false-negative results for glucose and hemoglobin with the application of an iodate impregnated mesh layer on the strip.1,2,3,4
