Primary Urine Collection Tubes

Primary Urine Collection Tubes

The analysis of urine samples is a common, non invasive method for initial patient screening. Historically collection of samples has been through the issue of 30ml containers to the patient. Whilst this is fine for on-the-spot dip-stick analysis of the sample, a more in depth analysis is more often being performed by clinical chemistry and microbiology laboratories using automated analysers. This results in the sample having to be decanted into tubes to fit the analyser racks that can often be messy, cause contamination and takes up valuable time.

WHEATON Primary Urine Collection Tubes are 16 x 100mm round bottom tubes that fit directly into the analyser racks for immediate analysis. The tubes are supplied with a collection cup for the patient’s comfort during sample collection and for them to easily transfer the sample to the tube. Manufactured from virgin polystyrene the tubes have a capacity of 11ml and are fitted with a leak proof screw cap for ease of transporting and storage of the sample. The tubes are suitable for use with all major automated urinalysis systems.
