How Urine Test Strips Are Made?

The urine test strips consist of a ribbon made of plastic or paper of about 5 millimetre wide, plastic strips have pads impregnated with chemicals that react with the compounds present in urine producing a characteristic colour. For the paper strips the reactants are absorbed directly onto the paper.

How do urine dipsticks work?

A dipstick — a thin, plastic stick with strips of chemicals on it — is placed in the urine. The chemical strips change color if certain substances are present or if their levels are above typical levels. A dipstick test checks for: Acidity (pH), glucose, protein, ketones, bilirubin, microalbumin, leukocytes, nitrite, urobilinogen, ascorbate, creatinine, calciu, red blood cell, etc.

Types of urine tests:

Single type urine test strips:

Red blood cell urine test
Glucose urine test strips

How to manufacture urine test strips?

Here is simple illustration of flowchart how to manufacture urinalysis strips.
There are two options to start your own business
Option 1:
Everything complete produce by youself, request below materials & equipment.
Materials: multiple types chemicals
Machines: 
1. Paper Slitting Machine
2. Drying & Soaking Machine
3. Laminating & Cutting Machine
4. Assembling & Cutting Machine
5. Strips Cutting Machine

Option 2:
Start from uncut, only need strip cutter machine enough.
1. Urine test uncut sheet
2. Strip cutter machine
Option 1
Every steps produce by self

Assembling & Cutting Machine
Step 4: Assembly uncut sheet, some types chemical roll stick on one backing card, become big uncut sheet, for example, if making 10 types urine test strips, then in sequence stick 10 types urine chemical roll (5mm/roll) on backing card.
