When finding nitrites in urine

When nitrites are found during a urine test, further investigation is required to ascertain your true health status. Using a urine test is a quick and inexpensive way to check for nitrite in your urine, and is one of our test kit products that can be done in the privacy of your home.

nitrites in urine

Normal nitrite range in urine

  • Zero

Measuring range

  • Negative or positive

Nitrite levels in urine

  • Any pink discoloration of the test pad indicates a positive reaction

Abnormal nitrite values may indicative of

  • Urinary tract infection

  • Bacterial infection

    • E Coli

    • Salmonella

    • Citrobacter

    • Proteus

    • Clebsiella

Further action required if nitrites are found in urine

  • check for

    • leucocytes

    • pH

    • protein

    • blood / hemoglobin (haemoglobin)

  • send urine for MC+S

Our nitrite urine test strip

  • Gram-negative bacteria in the urine reduces dietary nitrate to nitrite, forming the basis of this test.

  • Any degree of uniform pink to red color that appears on the test confirms the presence of nitrite, and indicates a significant bacteriuiria.

  • The color intensity is not significant, and is not proportional to the number of bacteria present in the urine sample.

  • Pink spots or pink edges should be interpreted as a negative result.

  • Prolonged urinary retention in the bladder (at least 4 - 8 hours) is essential to obtain an accurate result.

  • Sensitivity decreases with frequent micturition and/or increased diuresis; with insufficient dietary nitrate to convert to nitrite; when the bacteria causing the urinary tract infection does not contain the enzyme reductase, as well as urine with a high specific gravity.

  • For accurate test results, antibiotics should have been discontinued / course completed for at least 3 days before the test is performed.

  • Sensitivity: 11 umol/dl nitrite

  • Active reagent: sulfanilamide (1,9% w/w), aminonaphthalene (0,6% w/w)
