Urine  Analysis

A urine analysis is a group of physical, chemical, and microscopic tests. The tests detect and/or measure several substances in the urine, such as byproducts of normal and abnormal metabolism, cells, cellular fragments, and bacteria.

A complete urine analysis consists of three distinct testing phases:

  1. Visual examination, which evaluates the urine's color and clarity
  2. Chemical examination, which tests chemically for about 9 substances that provide valuable information about health and disease and determines the concentration of the urine
  3. Microscopic examination, which identifies and counts the type of cells, casts, crystals, and other components such as bacteria and mucus that can be present in urine

Stool Analysis

Blood in the stool may be threatening whether you find out after excretion or from a medical test ordered by your doctor. While bloody stool can be indicative of a serious issue, it is not always the case. This is what you need to know about the possible diagnosis of blood smeared fecal matter and what is required by you and your doctor if a problem is discovered.

Semen Analysis

A complete semen analysis measures the quantity and quality of the fluid released during ejaculation. It evaluates both the liquid portion, called semen or seminal fluid, and the microscopic, moving cells called sperm. It is often used in the evaluation of male infertility.

Method of testing

For Urine, you will be asked to collect the sample of urine in the given container.

For Stool, you will be asked to collect the sample of stool in the given container.

Semen

Typically, men produce testable samples by masturbating, and ejaculating semen into a container provided by the diagnostic centre.

Urine

A urine analysis is a group of physical, chemical, and microscopic tests. The tests detect and/or measure several substances in the urine, such as byproducts of normal and abnormal metabolism, cells, cellular fragments, and bacteria.

Urine is produced by the kidneys, two fist-sized organs located on either side of the spine at the bottom of the ribcage. The kidneys filter wastes out of the blood, help regulate the amount of water in the body, and conserve proteins, electrolytes, and other compounds that the body can reuse. Anything that is not needed is eliminated in the urine, traveling from the kidneys through ureters to the bladder and then through the urethra and out of the body. Urine is generally yellow and relatively clear, but each time a person urinates, the color, quantity, concentration, and content of the urine will be slightly different because of varying constituents.

Stool

Semen

Infertility evaluation: Most laboratories require samples to be collected on-site as the semen needs to be examined within 60 minutes after ejaculation in order to maintain the quality of the specimen.

Semen is collected in a private area by self-stimulation.

Sperm are very temperature-sensitive. If collection is done at home, the sample should be kept at body temperature (98.6oF/37oC) by keeping it next to the body during transportation. It should not be left at room temperature for an extended period of time and should not be refrigerated.

Sperm motility decreases after ejaculation; thus, timing and temperature are critical to obtaining accurate results. If the sample is poor, repeat testing might be needed.

To give sperm a chance to replenish, abstain from ejaculating for 2 to 5 days before the sample is collected. Longer periods of abstinence may result in a greater volume of semen but decreased sperm motility. You may also be asked to avoid alcohol consumption for a few days before the test as well.

Fasting type

Generally Fasting not required.

In certain cases, First Urine sample may be required.

For Diabetes Fasting Urine sample required.
