Intended to qualitatively detect the Urea hydrolyzing capability of various microorganisms.
Strips are impregnated with a proprietary Urea and phenol red indicator formulation. Urease producing organisms hydrolyze urea into ammonia and carbon dioxide. Ammonia production causes an alkaline shift above pH 8.0 which is readily visible by a change in color of the indicator dye from yellow to fuchsia pink.
