Microscopy and Culture (UTI) Urine Test

About this test

A sample of your urine is examined under the microscope and cultured for 18 hours, looking specifically for blood cells, pus cells and casts (the cells and mucous that accumulate in the kidney before passing into the urine). This test pin-points protein, a sure sign that there is either kidney damage or disease. A culture is made to look for infection and, if present, to help identify the type of antibiotic that will eradicate it. 

Who is this test for?

This test is for anyone who wants a thorough assessment of their kidney health, with a view to identifying any disease or damage. It is also used to diagnose urinary tract infections (UTIs).
