Urine dip question
- 0Jun 17, '13 by DisneywedSomeone help me out- I always pour ursine over the multistix so not to contaminate the specimen- getting pushback from someone at work about it. How do you do it & why?

And when theres only a little bit from say a pediatric cath specimen I use a syringe and needle to draw up just a teeny amount which is usually plenty to cover each square therefore not wasting any at all, especially useful when a microscopic or culture is necessary.
