This test is used to detect the presence of protein in a person's urine. Protein is a large molecule and is normally not excreted into the kidney. When protein is present in urine, it indicates a kidney that is not functioning properly. The presence of protein is an important indicator of kidney disease.

I received two 'strips' for checking urine (kidneys) in a huge amount of packaging. I followed the instructions precisely, and very carefully. When done, the first strip showed nothing at all. Not even the mild colour for "negative" at one end of the strip. It remained a pure white strip like an untreated strip of plastic. I assumed it was faulty, and used the second strip, but got the exact same result. Not even a tiny hint of colour for negative, and no colour for anything else either. I assumed that both strips were faulty, or never "treated" with any special substance for testing urine. I did not bother to get back to the company as I live so far away (Ireland) and my condition had improved in the meantime. Plus, the tests were not expensive. (Only expensive for something that never worked.)
