Confirmatory and Secondary Urinalysis Screening Tests (Online CE Course)
(based on 2401 customer ratings)
Urine reagent strip testing is usually a reliable method when screening specimens for glucose, protein, ketones, and bilirubin. However, it occasionally may be necessary to use a secondary method to confirm a result or to test for an analyte that may not be included in the reagent strip method. This course will help a tech to determine when a secondary or confirmatory urine screening method may be needed to ensure accurate patient test results. This course is appropriate for laboratory professionals and for clinical laboratory science students.
