Urinalysis is used to detect substances or cellular material in the urine associated with different metabolic and kidney disorders. It is used to detect urinary tract infections (UTI) and other disorders of the urinary tract. A regular urinalysis often includes color, clarity, odor, specific gravity, pH, protein, glucose, nitrites, WBC, and ketones. The most common method is dipstick or tablet reagent urinalysis but it can be performed by some other methods as well.
