Is Vitamin C interfering with
patient urinalysis results?

Virtually eliminate Vitamin C worries with Chemstrip urine test strips

Vitamin C can interfere with urinalysis results. At high concentrations in urine samples, vitamin C can produce false negative results — particularly with regard to glucose or blood (hemoglbin).1

There's a simple solution to help prevent false-negative blood and glucose results. Chemstrip urine test strips — for visual analysis or for automated testing with the Urisys 1100® urine analyzer. Only Chemstrip urine test strips help reduce Vitamin C interference. That’s because they’re designed with an iodate-impregnated mesh layer that oxidizes ascorbic acid and virtually eliminates the possibility for vitamin C interference.2
