Why Urine Culture Test?


Urine Culture Test is used along with results from a urinalysis (pus/blood), to diagnose a urinary tract infection (UTI) such as cystitis, and to identify the cause of infectious microbial agent eg. Staphylococcus, Klebsiella, E.coli, Enterobacter, or Proteus, etc. Urine culture is ordered in patients with UTI, when suspected with ascending to kidneys or bladder who manifest with clinical signs and symptoms. While the collection of urine sample specimen midstream urine is preferred. Apart from physical investigations such as color, volume, density, pH, gravity, etc, the urine sample specimen of the patient is added to a suitable culture medium for microbial growth. The formation of bacterial or fungal colony growth signifies the presence of that microbe as a positive test result. The absence of microbial growth in the urine culture medium is confirmed in negative test results. These test results help in arriving at diagnosis with confirmatory test results (to rule out a differential diagnosis) and prescribing specific medications against the infectious pathogens, and also in monitoring treatment (prognosis).
