The Urine Routine Microscopy is a combination of three tests: a visual exam, a chemical exam, and a microscopic exam. The visual exam evaluates the color and clarity of your urine. The chemical exam employs a special stick that changes color when dipped into the urine, and these color changes provide information about the levels of various substances in the urine. The microscopic exam involves observing a small amount of urine under a microscope, assessing for cells, crystals, bacteria, or any other microscopic entities.This comprehensive examination is widely used for several reasons. It can help diagnose urinary tract infections, kidney diseases, and the presence of substances that can form kidney stones. Moreover, it can be used for monitoring patients with chronic urinary system disorders and also help in detecting metabolic disorders.

Specific Instructions:
  • Hydration : Do not overhydrate before the test as very diluted urine may not give accurate results.
  • Clean Catch : When collecting the urine, it is often required to use the “clean-catch” method which involves cleaning the genital area before collection and collecting the midstream urine to minimize contamination.
  • Medications and Supplements : Inform the laboratory personnel or your doctor about any medications or supplements as some can affect the test results.
  • Fasting : Usually not required, but follow any specific instructions from your doctor.
