Specialized storage containers designed to collect, hold, and stabilize urine specimens collected over a 24-hour period; products may be available in several sizes, capacities, material compositions, etc.
Urine specimen collection and handling products are used to help collect urine for general testing, microbial culture, or specialized chemical diagnostics. Urine specimen collections may be random or collected over time.
Urine Specimen Collection for Urinalysis
Urinalysis specimens are collected in clean containers. If the sample cannot be tested immediately, a preservative may be added. Urine samples are centrifuged and the sediment examined microscopically for cells, bacteria, crystals, and other formed elements.
Standard urinalysis tests include pH, specific gravity, glucose, ketones, bacteria, creatinine, bilirubin, urobilinogen, nitrates, and blood. These tests are usually performed using a test strip that is submerged into the urine specimen. Then, it may be evaluated visually or using instrumentation.
Urine Specimen Collection for Culture
Products for urine collection for culture include sterile containers and supplies for producing clean-catch or midstream urine specimens. Urine specimens for culture are collected in a manner that reduces the possibility of contamination by bacteria from body surfaces.
Timed Urine Specimen Collection
Timed urine specimens may be collected for chemical analyses to assess kidney function. Typically analyzed for protein and creatine, the urine may also be tested for elevated levels of other metabolic waste products.
Collecting urine specimens for drugs of abuse testing may require special procedures and products that track temperature and record chain-of-custody.
Products for timed urine specimen collection include sterile containers, urine collection kits, pediatric urine collection products, evacuated tubes, 24-hour urine containers, urine preservatives, and other related supplies.
