A Urine Micro/ Culture test is used to detect bacteria in a urine sample which may be the cause of a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). Most UTI's are due to a bacterial infection which begins in the urethra. The most common symptoms of a UTI are swelling or irritation of the urethra, lower back pain, a strong persistent need to urinate and a burning sensation during urination.
The majority of these infections can be easily treated if they are caught early. However, if left untreated, the infection may spread to the kidneys which can cause permanent damage. A urine culture test uses a urine sample which is incubated over several days to see what types of bacteria or yeasts grow.
Also tests for blood, protein and glucose in the urine. ETA for results: 24-48 hours
