How should the urine sample be collected for testing?

The urine should be collected using the ‘Clean Catch’ method. To make sure that you get an accurate urinalysis test every time, please see some important points below:

  • Use only clean, preferably, sterile urine specimen containers.
  • Before taking the test, make sure that your hands and genital area are clean.
  • Midstream urine is the best sample for urinalysis.
  • Examination of the urine with test strips should be carried out as soon as possible.
  • Cleaning agents and disinfectants can distort results (false-positive findings for different parameters).
When you understand better, you feel better.
