Urinalysis/Sediment + Bacteriological culture

LABOKLIN Service ID: 1261

semiquantitative collection of clinical cahmical and cellular parameters and measurement of specific gravity + bacteriology


urine 6 ml or urine 5 ml + swab with medium or urine 5 ml + uricult


specific gravity, pH,
protein, haemoglobin/myoglobin, bilirubin, urobilinogen, glucose, nitrite, ketone bodies,
erythrocytes, leukocytes, bacteria, yeasts, cylinders, epithelia, crystals and


dry chemistry, photometry, microscopy, culture


2 - 3 days


  • Diagnostic clarification of urinary tract diseases and superior diseases (liver or kidney disease or metabolic disorders) which may lead to changes in urination (polyuria, stranguria and oliguria).
  • Samples arriving on Saturday will be analysed the same day; delivery of the findings will take place on Monday
  • If characteristic crystals (see figure) are found in the sediment, the animal species, urine pH and specific gravity should be included to draw clear conclusions about the chemical composition. Larger concretions can be analysed by FTIR (see Urinary Calculi).
  • Dog: Please indicate if treated with allopurinol.
  • When sending in Uricult, the examination takes 1 – 3 days.
