Abstract

A system and method for increasing confidence, privacy, and efficiency in obtaining in-home urinalysis results is contemplated. A negative-result control is provided in conjunction with a plurality of test cartridges designed to yield results about the test sample in several different regards (e.g., use of selected combinations of drugs and/or alcohol by the test subject, the integrity of the urine sample, the medical or physiological condition(s) of the test subject, etc.). Convenient sample test bins are included to allow for real-time and/or side-by-side comparison of the urine sample test results against a verified, negative result control.

Claim(s)

1 . A test kit for verifying urinalysis results with improved levels of confidence, the kit comprising: a number of identical test devices each holding a plurality of urinalysis test strips arranged in a spaced apart array so that wicking or capillary action draws a test sample into contact with a discrete indicator disposed on or in each strip; a negative-result control sample including multi-factors selected to mimic human urine; and a plurality of sterilized test bins, matching the number of test devices, and each test bin has a sufficient depth to submerge the array of urinalysis test strips without having any single test strip come into contact with a sidewall of that bin; and wherein each test device is contained within a separate protective covering prior to use and wherein the number of test devices is at least two.
