This liver test detects abnormal levels of bilirubin and urobilinogen in urine, raised levels can indicate liver disease. It is recommended that you take this test if you are feeling generally unwell or are experiencing any of the following: Nausea / Fatigue / Lack of appetite / Yellowing of the skin and eyes
How accurate is this test?
This test has proven 98% accurte in laboratory testing.
This test is intended as an initial indication of elevated chemical markers and not conclusive of specific diagnosis. Further testing and consultation with a healthcare proffessional is necessary to confirm the presence of a specific disease or health condition.
1. One vacuum wrapper containing the test stick
2. One urine sample container.
1. Collect urine halfway to the top of the sample container provided.
2. Prepare some tissue papers.
1. Remove the test stick from the vacuum wrapper. Hold the stick by the textured thumb grip.
2. Completely immerse the test reagent area in the urine sample for between 1-2 seconds, and remove immediately.
3. Holding the reagent area downwards, use a tissue to remove excess urine, taking care not to wipe or touch the reagent area of the test stick. Lay the test stick on a flat surface.
4. After waiting 60 seconds, immediately compare the resultant colours of the testing reagent area to the colour chart on the box to determine the test result. Colour changes in the test reagent areas indicate the presence of liver disease. See "Test results interpretation" below.
1. It is important that the reagent area of the test stick is completely submerged during
2. Angle the sample container if necessary to ensure the reagent area is fully immersed in urine.
It is not recommended that you perform the test by holding the test stick directly in your urine stream as the reagent material may be washed away in the process, leading to an invalid test result.
1. Do not open the vacuum wrapper containing the test stick until you are ready to start the test.
2. Do not touch the reagent area of the stick with your hands.

4. If you have trouble differentiating colours, please ask someone to interpret the results for you.
5. Store the box in a dry place at between 15oC-30oC (59oF-86oF). Avoid exposing to direct sunlight, moisture or heat.
6. Do not use after the expiry date listed on the box.
7. The test stick is designed for single-use only, and should not be reused.
8. For in-vitro use only (not for internal use).
9. Keep out of the reach of children.

11. For accuracy, the colour comparison should be read 1 minute right after the test stick is removed from the sample container.
Test results interpretation:
1. Please refer to the colour comparison chart for interpretation of the test results.
2. If either of the colours indicate 'abnormal', you should consult your doctor.
The protein bilirubin is the waste product formed when red blood cells die and haemoglobin is broken down. In healthy individuals, bilirubin is metabolized by liver. An above normal level of bilirubin in the urine is indicative of liver disease. If your test results indicate 'abnormal' (mild, moderate, or severe), please seek the advice of your doctor.
The protein urobilinogen is formed in the intestines by bacterial action from the protein bilirubin. This is then absorbed and passed to the liver and urine. An above normal level of urobilinogen in the urine is indicative of liver disease. If your test results indicate 'abnormal' (mild, moderate, or severe), please seek the advice of your doctor.
