pH Check Acid Balance Monitor by TestMedica
TestMedica - pH Check Acid Balance Monitor - 50 Strips
TestMedica pH Check Acid Balance Monitor indicates the acid or alkaline content of urine (pH) by measuring the concentration of hydrogen ions. TestMedica pH Check Acid Balance Monitor scale reads urine levels between 5 and 8.5. On a scale of 1-10, 7 represents neutrality, lower numbers indicate increasing acidity and higher numbers increasing alkalinity. Each unit of change represents a tenfold change in acidity or alkalinity. The pH of urine can range from an extremely unhealthy low of 4.5 to a high of 8.5.
Why Monitor pH Levels with TestMedica pH Check?
Persistent alkaline urine (pH 7-8) may be indicative of urinary tract infection, vegetarian diet, alkalosis, pyloric stenosis/obstruction, vomiting or alkalizing drugs. Persistent acid urine (pH 5-7) may be indicative of gout, fever, phenacetin intake or predisposition to kidney stones. In a pH balanced body, urine is slightly acid in the morning (after fasting), with a pH range of 6.5-7.0, generally becoming more alkaline, pH = 7.5-8.0 by evening as the body digests food and releases electrolytes.

Seems to be good and accurate. I don't know if I just missed it in the description or not, but it's for testing in urine only. I would have got a different one if I knew that. Oh well.
not the best out there for sure
