Tests for proteinuria and albuminuria remain important in numerous urological problems as diagnostic and prognostic indicators. To achieve reliable and accurate results, pre-analytical steps in sample handling are important. Various urinary protein and albumin detection methods can be employed, with 24-h urinary protein excretion being the gold standard. However, this method is time-consuming, uncomfortable for patients, and subject to inaccuracies. Measuring albuminuria and proteinuria as albumin-to-creatinine ratio (ACR) and protein-to-creatinine ratio (PCR) via urine strip test in an automated semi-quantitative assay could offer cost effective and faster reliable results as compared to other methods.
