How do you test urine?
- Students perform diagnostic lab tests
- Simulated urine included
- Time required: one 50 minute class period
Watch any athletic event on TV and the subject of testing for banned substances will always be discussed in some form of fashion. So how do you teach the basics of urinalysis in the classroom? With this kit! Students analyze simulated urine samples to understand the procedures used in urinalysis and the potential applicability of urinalysis as a diagnostic tool. By adding different reagents to urine samples, students observe how each reacts with substances in the urine, providing useful evidence for identifying different substances. Students test simulated urine samples for pH, density, glucose, phosphates and chlorides. Enough reagents are provided for 30 students.
