•Urea is the major end product of protein metabolism.
•It is synthesized in the liver from ammonia, which is produced by amino acid deamination.
•The determination of blood urea is an important index of kidney function.
•Impaired renal function or increased tissue protein breakdown are associated with increased urea levels, whereas liver damage or pregnancy are associated with decreased levels.
•BloodUreaTestStrips has been described by Ormerod, T.P. in 1968.
•This procedure is a quick, convenient way to semi-quantitatively approximate Blood Urea
levels in whole blood.
•InSight Veterinary Blood Urea TestStrips utilize Patent Pending enhancers yielding superior accuracy and precision.
