Definitions of WOHLGEMUTH'S TEST
Sort: Oldest first
A test for renal adequacy based on the fact that normal renal tissue excretes a diastatic enzyme, which fails in proportion as the parenchyma of the kidney is diseased. The urine is treated with a solution of soluble starch, 1-1000; and after exposure in the incubator to allow a digestive reaction, the fluid is tested with iodine to determine the degree of starch hydrolysis.
