URINALYSIS: Reflex Urine Microscopic Examination

Thursday, October 04, 2007 at 2:46:38 PM

The laboratories at WMH and BGH have made changes in criteria for urine microscopics. Up until this time, microscopic examinations have not been reflexed for Trace of Urine Occult Blood. This result will now trigger a reflex microscopic exam as do higher levels of Occult Blood. In the case of Urine Ketones, microscopic examination will no longer be reflexed for any level. For Urine Glucose, microscopic examination will be reflexed for levels above 100 mg/dl.
