Urinalysis

Clinical urine tests are examinations of the physical and chemical properties of urine and its microscopic appearance to aid in medical diagnosis. The term urinalysis—a blend of the words urine and analysis—generally refers to the gross examination of the urine, chemical evaluation using urine test strips, and microscopic examination. Gross examination targets parameters that can be measured with the naked eye, including volume, color, transparency, odor, and specific gravity; urine test strips measure chemical properties such as pH, glucose concentration, and protein levels; and light microscopy is performed to identify elements such as cells, urinary casts, crystals, and organisms. Other analyses routinely performed on urine samples include urine electrolyte levels, drug testing, pregnancy testing and microbiological culture.
