06 Sample Collection

An important tool for any patient showing signs of a urinary tract disease is the urinalysis.  This requires the collection of a urine sample.  There are several methods for collecting urine, and each has advantages and disadvantages.  For patients you suspect have a urinary tract infection, you should place a high priority on a technique that will obtain a sample with the least amount of contamination that can be used for bacterial culture.
