'Clinitest' urine testing kit, in brass-bound mahogany case, by Ames, Nuffield House, Piccadilly, London, W1, England, 1957-1963.

‘Clinitest’ is a portable urine testing kit. It is similar to those used in small rural (or ‘cottage’) hospitals or in the general practitioners’ surgeries. The kit was made by American company Ames. It detected substances such as blood, protein, glucose and sugar within urine. Identification of these substances within urine can assist the diagnosis of diseases such as diabetes. The British Army donated this kit to the Science Museum.
