Specimen:Urine
Volume:0.5 mL
Container:Plastic urine container with lid

Uses:Screen for protein in the urine. The detection of protein in the urine combined with the microscopic examination forms the basis of the differential laboratory diagnosis of renal disease.

Contamination of the urine specimen with quaternary ammonium compounds (e.g., from some antiseptics and detergents) or with skin cleansers containing chlorhexidine may also produce false positive results.
Method:Colorimetric
