Abstract
Dry-chemistry analysis of urine has been one of the most common and useful assay means in clinic for diagnosing disease, especially urinary system disease because it is very convenient and low cost. One of the most important keys about this analysis is to expediently and efficiently acquire the change relationship between color value about urinalysis reagent piece (URP) of each test item (ETI) and semi-quantitative result (SQR). For getting the relationships easily, a novel tool software is designed in this paper. First, we introduce the idea of this designed software. Second, the implement method of the software is described. Third, several functions and application examples about acquiring color values of test items are narrated. Then, the change relationships among color values and semi-quantitative results (SQRs) about two test items were also shown. From the examples, we could confidently draw a conclusion that it is very convenient and effective to study on the relationships or laws among color variations of urinalysis reagent pieces (URPs) and SQRs for different manufacturers’ urinalysis reagent strips (URSs). Therefore, the software can be taken as a useful tool for studying on urine dry-chemistry analysis, especially, for developing application software, which may be installed in some household smart devices with cameras, such as smartphone and iPad, to realize the function of portable point-of-care and household urine analyzer.
