It produces quantitative results for specific gravity, semi- quantitative results for glucose, blood, leukocyte esterade, bilirubin, urobilinogen, pH, protein, ketones, and ascorbic acid; and qualitative results for nitrites, color, and clarity. iChemVELOCITY strips are intended for use only with the iChemVELOCITY analyzer. In particular they are not intended for visual reading. The iChemVELOCITY is not intended to be used as a Point of Care (POC) analyzer. The measurements are used to aid in the diagnosis of metabolic disorders, kidney function anomalies, urinary tract infections, and liver finction. Tests performed using the iChemVELOCITY are intended for clinical laboratory use and in vitro diagnostic use only.
