Can I urinate directly on the strip?

To avoid color bleeding from adjacent pads, it is not recommended to urinate directly on multiparameter urine test strips. Use a clean disposable container to collect the urine sample, preferably a sterile cup.

If you pee directly on the urine strip, all ten parameters may not get equally wet. Cross-bleeding will result in inaccurate results.

When you understand better, you feel better.
