Ictotest® Reagent Tablets are used to test for the presence of bilirubin in urine. The presence of bilirubin is an important finding in the evaluation of liver function and a positive detection could be an indication of liver disease such as jaundice, cirrhosis or hepatitis. Hospital and laboratories rely on the quality of Siemens’ Ictotest reagent tablets to confirm bilirubin results prior to providing the results to their customers.
- Ictotest Reagent Tablets were first made available in 1953
- Use of Ictotest requires a dropper and distilled water, in addition to the absorbent mats and reagent tablets provided.
- The test is easy to perform and gives timely and accurate confirmatory urine bilirubin results in one minute.
- Level of detection ≥ 0.05 to 0.1 mg bilirubin/dL in urine (0.9–1.7 µmol/L).
