pH Test Strips are a short range highly accurate way for testing the pH of both urine and saliva. Simply match the colour change to the included colour chart for your pH reading. These kits offer you an easy to read, single colour match at every .2 to .3 interval from pH 5.5-8.0.
The colour chart, presented on the label, has pH matches at...
Please note: Our range of pH testing equipment are genuine Hydrion pharmaceutical grade quality and not cheap imports. Hence your readings will be instant and accurate as is required in laboratory conditions.
Directions for use
Dip the strip into the test solution.
Instantly compare the resulting colour with the matching pH colour chart.
Measuring your urine:
Midstream*, quickly wet the pH plastic strip with your urine flow. Immediately compare the colour of the plastic strip to the pH colour chart.
Alternatively, collect midstream* urine into a glass or jar, and dip your pH plastic strip into the urine. Immediately compare the colour of the plastic strip to the pH colour chart.
The pH of urine upon waking should be around 6.2 - 6.8 and move towards an alkaline state pH7 and above after eating.
* Midstream means to start your urination and when you feel you’re half finished, that’s when you dip your paper into the urine flow or when you collect a small sample for measuring.
Measuring your saliva:
Upon waking, before you drink water, tea, coffee etc., have your pH plastic strip ready and swallow whatever saliva is in your mouth. Draw-up fresh saliva and then swallow. Do this two times.
When you draw up saliva for the third time, spit this saliva onto a spoon and quickly dip your pH plastic strip into the spit. Immediately compare the colour of the pH plastic strip to the colour chart. The same process applies if measuring throughout the day.
The pH of saliva upon waking should be around 6.4 - 6.8 and move towards an alkaline state pH7 and above after eating.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are the results accurate?
Super-sensitive pharmaceutical grade Hydrion diagnostic pH testing strips give you an accurate reading of how acidic or alkaline your tissues really are.
Approximately how many tests per vial are there?
There is 100 test strips per vial.
Can I use my pH Litmus Test Paper to measure the pH of water?
No. The reagent used in the pH Litmus Paper is designed for buffered solutions only.
What is a buffered solution?
A buffered solution is a solution with adequate dissolved solids to resist pH changes. For example, urine and saliva are considered buffered in their natural state. However, rain water, tap water etc. are considered to be dilute, weakly buffered solutions.
