A first morning specimen is frequently requested to confirm: a negative urine pregnancy test
Pediatric urine specimens are additionally tested for the presence of: galactose using Clinitest
Reagent strip tests for glucose use: double sequential enzyme reactions
A 1+ reagent strip reaction and a 4+ Clinitest reaction could indicate the presence of: glucose and other reducing substances
The primary purpose of the Acetest tablets is to: test serum for increased ketones
A spotted reaction on the reagent strip reaction for blood indicates: hematuria
