The test incorporates a pH indicator which changes color in the presence of protein.
Any green color that develops is due to the presence of protein.
The test is highly sensitive to albumin, and less sensitive to hemoglobin (haemoglobin), globulin and mucoprotein.
Normal urine of high specific gravity may cause higher than normal readings, as will highly buffered urine, alkaline urine (equal or larger than 9) and urine containing residues of chlorhexidine or quaternary ammonia compounds.
Sensitivity: 10 mg/dl albumin
Active reagent: tetrabromophenol blue (1% w/w).
