Urine, like blood, is a potentially infectious sample material. The VACUETTE® Urine System enables a closed, sterile urine collection that in turn will improve the sample quality and guarantee the efficiency of the testing procedure. Tubes are available with or without preservatives.
The preservative helps stabilise the sample, which is important when the sample cannot be analysed within 2 hours of collection. Tubes can be ordered with either a round base or a conical base. Round-based tubes are used for chemical urine tests, whilst tubes with a conical base are used for microscopic examinations of urine sedimentation.
