Research Facts
It is used as a test to diagnose kidney problems and diseases (injected intravenously) and as a estrogenic stimulus. Urine tests are done to diagnose kidneys, the amount of phenol red excreted indicates kidney function (more excreted: the better the kidneys are working; less excreted: indicates chronic kidney conditions). It can enhance growth of cells that have estrogen receptors, because phenol red is an estrogen mimic.
