Urine Specimen Collection

A urine specimen for urinalysis should be collected in a clean, dry, disposable container. If the sample is to be cultured, the container must be sterile. The preferred method is the " midstream clean-catch" collection. The external genitalia are cleansed with a mild antiseptic solution. The first part of the urine stream is discarded while collecting only the midstream portion of the urine.
