How to perform a urine pH test?

Follow the steps below to perform a urine pH test:

  1. Start with a freshly collected urine sample in a clean, dry container.
  2. Remove a strip from the pouch and immediately re-seal the pouch. Hold the strip without touching the test pads.
  3. Immerse the strip into the urine sample and remove it immediately by dragging the edge of the strip against the container rim to remove excess urine. Start timing.
  4. Remove excess urine by blotting the side of the strip on a paper towel.
  5. Place the strip horizontally on a paper towel. Results are ready to read 30 seconds after wetting the pads.
  6. Compare the color of the test pads to the corresponding row of color blocks on the color key to find the closest match. Read the results carefully at 30 seconds in a good light. The color changes that appear after one minute are of no diagnostic significance.
