After eating beets purchased at the local farmers’ market, Mrs. Williams notices that her urine is red, but Mr. William’s urine remains yellow. The Williamses should:

Specimens from patients receiving treatment for urinary tract infections frequently appear:

Freshly voided normal urine is usually clear; however, if it is alkaline, a white turbidity may be present due to:

Microscopic examination of a clear urine that produces a pink precipitate after refrigeration will show:

Under what conditions will a port-wine urine color be observed in a urine specimen?


Which of the following specific gravities would be most likely to correlate with a dark yellow urine?

Urine specific gravity is equally influenced by the presence of glucose and sodium.

In what circumstance might a sediment be slightly warmed prior to microscopic examination?

A urine specific gravity measured by refractometer is 1.029, and the temperataure of the urine is 14C. The specific gravity should be reported as:
