Summary:

Macroscopic urine analysis consists of examination of the physiochemical characteristics of urine, including volume, color, clarity, odor, pH, and specific gravity. Urine reagent test strip results (manual or automated) detect the presence/absence and amount of the following constituents: protein, glucose, ketones, hemoglobin and myoglobin, nitrites, leukocytes, and urobilinogen.

Objectives:
