Microscopy and Culture (UTI) Urine Test
- You want to see if you have a urinary tract infection (UTI)
- You want a thorough assessment of your kidney health, with a view to identifying any disease or damage
For this test, a sample of urine is examined under the microscope in the laboratory and cultured for 18 hours, looking specifically for blood cells, pus cells and casts which are the cells and mucous that accumulate in the kidney before passing into the urine. This test pin-points protein, to identify whether there is either kidney damage or disease. A urine culture checks for any microorganisms present that may cause an infection and, if they are present, helps to identify the type of antibiotic that will eradicate it.
