Lifesign 1 procedure Procedure
  • Open the sealed pouch, remove the LifeSign® 1 test stick, and remove the protective cap. Once you open the pouch, you should use the test within 30 minutes.
  • Turn the test stick so that the reading window is facing away from you, with the absorbent tip down, and hold the absorbent tip in your urine stream for at least 5 seconds (10 seconds is better). The test will not work properly if too little urine is absorbed or if urine is spilled into the reading window.
  • Replace the protective cap over the wet absorbent tip and leave the stick on a flat surface with the reading window facing up.
  • Read the result after 3 minutes, but within 5 minutes. While you wait, you will see a pink color moving up the reading window. A pinkish-purple line will form in the Control (upper) window to tell you the test is working correctly.
Alternate Procedure Lifesign 1 alternate procedure
  • Collect urine into a clean cup. Open the pouch and remove the test as above. Dip the absorbent tip of the stick at least halfway into the urine, for at least 10 seconds.
  • Replace the protective cap over the wet absorbent tip and leave the stick on a flat surface with the reading window facing upward.
  • Read the result after 3 minutes, but do not read after 5 minutes.
