The preparation procedure and optimal composition of polyurethane diagnostic membranes were described to measure the glucose concentration in a urine. Vessel size, blade size and the ratio of solvent mixtures were found to be critical factors to get the better sensitivity and the stability of the color which appeared on polyurethane membranes after the reaction with the urine glucose. These urine strips made of polyurethane membranes made it possible to measure the urine glucose quantitatively because they showed a good color separation at glucose concentration from 30mg/dL to 500mg/dL.
