This product is used to obtain a visual, semi-quantitative result and is intended for professional use only. A more specific alternative chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result.
The steady expulsion of small quantities of albumin with the urine can be the first sign of kidney damage. In the healthy kidney albumin is usually glomerular filtrated and tubular reabsorbed, so that it is hardly detectable in urine. With a damaged kidney this process is disordered. The expulsion of albumin in the range of 20 - 200 mg/L is characterized as microalbuminuria. With this microalbumin test such small concentrations are already securely captured. Especially with diabetics positive results could point to a beginning diabetic nephropathy. Without appropriate therapeutic intervention it will lead for a high percentage of patients to a progression of this complication. The expulsion of albumin increases continuously (= macroalbuminuria) and ends finally after several years in a renal failure, which makes dialysis or a kidney transplant inevitable. In the USA and Europe diabetes is the main cause for terminal kidney failure. A study (DEMAND), accomplished world-wide, shows that approx. 41% of type-2 diabetics exhibit a microalbuminuria. The frequency of microalbuminuria increases with age, blood pressure and diabetes duration, and is the rarer, the better the blood sugar is adjusted. The high prevalence of the illness reveals how important a microalbuminuria annual screening is for diabetics. For type-1 diabetics the first measurements are usually recommended 5 years after initiation of the illness. For type-2 diabetics the screening should start directly with the first outset of the diagnosis, since it is
unknown, how long the illness already exists. The diagnosis of a microalbuminuria is also of special importance, since it can be not only the first sign of a beginning nephropathy but also an indicator for an increased risk for cardiovascular illnesses for type-2 diabetics. An increase of albumin expulsion can be due, beside damages of renal structures, to additional factors of influence like physical activity, infections of the urinary tract, high blood pressure, heart insufficiency or surgical interferences. If the increased albumin expulsion disappears after removal of these factors, it concerns only a transient albuminuria without any pathological reason. Since the albumin expulsion can vary substantially from day to day, at least 2 of 3 urine samples, which were collected over a period of 3-6 months, should show increased albumin values, before a microalbuminuria is diagnosed.
Allow the test, urine specimen, and/or controls to equilibrate to room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
1. Remove the test cassette from the sealed foil pouch and use it as soon as possible. Best results will be obtained if the assay is performed immediately after opening the foil pouch.
2. Place the test cassette on a clean and level surface. Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 full drops of urine (approx.120μL) to the specimen well(S) of test cassette and start the timer. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well. See illustration below.
3. Wait for the line(s) to appear. Read the results at 5 minutes, by comparing the color intensity of the test result line within the T-range with the color scale.
The evaluation should take place no later than 10 minutes after the test. Please adhere strictly. Longer or shorter response times affect the color intensity of the test result line and obstruct a safe semi-quantitative evaluation.
