The Osumex Testing kits are non-invasive urine testing kits. They are also suitable to test any other reasonably clear solutions where appropriate to do so. The kits are all simple to use at home with full instructions given in the kits. However, the user is recommended to read through the instructions first to fully understand the steps required to prepare the solution for testing and then to use the test. This will avoid doing it incorrectly and wasting the kit. If there are any uncertainties after reading the instructions, please contact Osumex and a customer representative will be happy to assist.

Test for Heavy Metals
These kits are suitable for testing any clear soltuions such as water, uirne, or others. There are 2 types of kits:

HMT General kits - The General kits can test a range of 8 heavy metals namely:
However, they are not quantitative tests in that it does not give readings to parts per million and also only the metal with the highest concentration of ions in the sample solution will finally show. It does indicate if there are more than one of the 8 metals tested present in the sample solution. It is therefore a good preliminary test if the user is only interested to find out if any of the 8 metals is present in the sample solution.

HMT Specific kits - The Specific kits are quantitative tests and they test an individual metal in a given sample solution accurately giving results in parts per million (ppm). There are kits to test 15 different metals, namely:

Test saliva only if user wishes to check for leakage of mercury from amalgam dental filings. The saliva should be collected from chewing gum. The chewing process causes mercury leakage (if there is leakage) for a more accurate result. Otherwise, test urine for heavy metals in the body. Always use first morning urine for a more accurate result

Each of the above kits (General or Specific) does one test only.

HM-CHELAT - gentle EDTA Oral Chelator

Osumex HM-Chelat is used for the extraction and removal of heavy metal ions based on polyaminopolycarbonic acid (DiCalciumEDTA), its physiological digestive sales and stabilized oxygen electrolyte in distilled water. It is a very gentle EDTA chelator, so gentle that even babies six months or older can use.

HM-Chelat is easier to administer than most chelators. A program of between 6 - 12 months is suggested for an appreciable reduction of the heavy metals load. This is done without disturbance to the vital metals minerals balance that is essential for the proper healthy state of the body. A first mobilization of heavy metal ions out of the body can and often do cause serious side effects, so by doing it gently, the side effects are generally not felt significantly.

Hm-Chelat is non-toxic and works through the creation of a magnetic gradient in the blood after it has been absorbed follwing ingestion. The heavy metal ions "floating freely" in the blood are neutraized and bound up by HM-Chelat. This causes a "vacuum" in the blood, ie., free of heavy metal ions, which then cause a "pull" on heavy metal ions trapped in the tissues and organs of the body to be released. Through this process the heavy metals load is slowly and surely eliminated.

The Free Radical Test kit tests urine for Malondialdehyde (MDA), a by-product of free radical activity, in the body. It is more accurate (50 times) than checking blood as the body removes MDA from the blood quickly through the kidneys into the urine. Besides, this is a simpler test and non-invasive.

Osumex’s Free Radical Test is a simple, inexpensive, easy to use kit which provides result in minutes. The test can be done at the user’s leisure at home. There is no need to send away or wait anxiously for the results to be returned.

Excessive free radicals cause a lot of health issues including dementia, arthritis, cancers, aging, etc. It is therefore important to check for free radical activity in the body regularly and where excessive activity is found, steps must be taken to control and or reduce such activity through diet or supplementation.

The Osumex Adrenal Function Urine Test is a simple home test for the function of the user's adrenals. It checks the user's urine for salt content and from there be able to ascertain if the adrenals are "hyper", "normal" or "fatigued". This will allow the user to take the necessary action to correct "hyper" or "fatigued" adrenals with supplementation and or diet. This is important to maintain good health aa the adrenals are also linked to the function of the thyroid glands.

Determination of the salt content in urine is based on the reaction of silver ions with chloride ions and silver chloride is precipitated quantitatively. The end point of the reaction is made visible by the presence of the activator. During the test, the urine sample remains light to dark yellow. When the urine sample turns to a light brown hue (see image), the test is complete. It is important to count the number of drops of indicator added. Once this colour is achieved, addition of more indicator will cause the colour to darken.

A trial sample of 1% NaCl is provided so that the user can practise to recognise the colour change for the completion of the test.

The Osumex Sulkowitch Urine Calcium Test is a simple home test for the presence of calcium in urine using a simple titration procedure. The test measures calcium being excreted from the body. Calcium absorption depends on the acidity of the stomach, as well as a number of other co-factors including the amount of phosphate present, and takes place in the upper intestine.

Calcium is the most common mineral in the body and one of the most important. The body needs it to build and fix bones and teeth, help nerves work, make muscles squeeze together, help blood clot, and help the heart to work. Almost all of the calcium in the body is stored in the bones. The rest is found in the blood.

Normally the level of calcium in the blood is carefully controlled. When blood calcium levels get low (hypocalcemia), the bones release calcium to bring it back to a good blood level. When blood calcium levels get high (hypercalcemia), the extra calcium is stored in the bones or passed out of the body in urine and stool. The amount of calcium in the body depends on the amount of:

  • Calcium you get in your food.
  • Calcium and vitamin D your intestines absorb.
  • Phosphate in the body.
  • Certain hormones, including parathyroid hormone, calcitonin, and estrogen in the body.
  • High calcium levels in the urine can cause kidney stones.
Vitamin D and these hormones help control the amount of calcium in the body. They also control the amount of calcium you absorb from food and the amount passed from the body in urine. The blood levels of phosphate are closely linked to calcium levels and they work in opposite ways: As blood calcium levels get high, phosphate levels get low, and the opposite is also true.

The Osumex 10-P Urine Analysis pack checks for 10 parameters in urine. These are:

bilirubin, blood, glucose, ketone (acetoacetic acid), leukocyte, nitrite, pH, protein, specific gravity and urobilinogen

It is a very useful test as an early warning sign for health problems in the body, for example:

  • a positive reading for glucose suggests the potential for onset of adult (type-2) diabetes (diabetes mellitus)
  • a positive reading for bilirubin and urobillinogen may indicate liver issues
  • a positive reading for blood and protein may indicate kidney issues
  • a positive reading for nitrite and leukocyte may indicate bladder infection
and readings of the other parameters will provide indications of potential of other health issues.

The Osumex pH Indicator stripes are easy to use at home. It is important to check the pH of the body using both saliva and urine on a regular basis. "True Health Lives in an Alkaline State".

pH (potential of Hydorgen) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. It is measured on a scale of 0-14. The lower the pH the more acidic the solution and the higher the more alkaline (or base). When a solution is neither acidic nor alkaline, it has a pH 7 which is neutral.

The optimum range of pH for the body is between 6.8 to 7.5. pH readings of 5 or less suggests serious health issues such as cancers, cardiovascular problems, etc. Where the pH measured is low, the user needs to correct the body's pH through supplementation and or diet.

This is a kit to test water, particularly well, rain, or any untreated "outside" water to check that it is safe to consume. The test will detect the water for the following contaminants:

  • presence of coliform bacteria
  • level of water hardness
  • level of total iron (ferrous and ferric) present in the water
  • pH of the water
  • alkalinity of the water
  • level of chlorine in the water
  • presence of any metals, especially toxic metals such as cadmium, cobalt, copper, lead, manganese, mercury and nickel.

This bacteria test enables user to find out if the sample water contains coliform bacteria. Coliform bacteria are a commonly used bacterial indicator of sanitary quality of foods and water. They are defined as rod-shaped Gram-negative non-spore forming bacteria which can ferment lactose with the production of acid and gas when incubated at 35–37°C.

This 2-test pack enables user to find out if the sample water contains iron (both ferrous and ferric). It also checks for the hardness of the water.

Iron on its own is generally not harmful to health. It does cause stain to machinery, sink and other fixtures as well as causing scale build-up in plumbing and equipment. This decreases their efficiency and in time total blockage and use. The presence of iron may suggest the presence of iron bacteria and they may cause other organisms to grow in the water.

Again hardness of water is not harmful to health but where the level of hardness is high, it generally indicate the presence of iron. Water hardness is the traditional measure of of the capacity of water to react with soap, hard water require a considerable amount of soap to produce a lather. Hard water normally produces a noticeable amount of precipitate in containers including "bathroom ring."

Water containing calcium carbonate:

  • below 60mg/L is considered as soft
  • 60 - 120mg/L is considered as moderately hard
  • 120 - 180mg/L is considered as hard
  • above 180mg/L is considered very hard

MF Water was developed primarily to enable users of the Osumex HMT Kits who wanted to test food or other substances to prepare the specimen solution for testing. Users had to soak samples of the food or substances in metal free water with weak (5%) acetic acid or clean white vinegar.

However, it was discoverd that a lot of the "distilled" water sold by retail outlets contained presence of metals when tested. These distilled water was supposed to be clear of metals. As a result Osumex decided to develop the product to enable users to prepare the necessary specimen solution to conduct the test.
