Adulteration

AdultaCheck 6 test strips are recently available which can be used to detect creatinine, oxidants, nitrite, glutaraldehyde, pH and chromate. In our experience, both AdultaCheck 6 and Intect 7 effectively identified the presence of low and high concentrations of PCC as well as nitrite in urine. Moreover, Intect 7 can also detect small amount of bleach (10 ^L of bleach/mL of urine).

AdultaCheck 6 and Intect 7 test strips were effective for detecting the presence of glutaraldehyde in urine. When glutaraldehyde was present at a concentration of less than 0.4% by volume, neither AdultaCheck 6 nor Intect 7 showed expected color change. However, at glutaraldehyde concentration above 2% by volume, both urine test strips showed the desired color change in the pad designed to detect the presence of glutaraldehyde.

AdultaCheck 6 has a test pad for determining the creatinine concentration in urine. The possible readings are 0, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 400mg/dL. Intect 7 test pad shows reading of 0, 10, 20, 50 and 100mg/dL depending on color change of the test pad. Precise concentration of creatinine cannot be determined. Similarly, neither test strip can determine precise pH of a urine specimen but only can show the range. However, both AdultaCheck 6 and Intect 7 test strips successfully differentiated between abnormal creatinine and pH from normal creatinine and pH in urine as determined by precise measurement of creatinine using the Synchron LX 20 analyzer and pH using a pH meter (49).
