Avoid drinking too much fluid before performing the test.
- Wash your hands with soap and water and dry with a paper towel.
- Open the urinal container carefully without touching the inside of the container or the door.
- Clean the urethra with a disposable damp cloth twice and with a new towel each time. In people who are not circumcised, pull the urethral skin out of the urethra.
- Be careful not to touch the inside of the container with any part of your body, otherwise ask for a re-sampling unit.
- Drain a small amount of the first portion of urine (the first few drops) into the toilet and collect about 30 ml (half of the sample container).
- Close the lid of the sample container and deliver it to the laboratory.
- If the urine sample becomes contaminated at the time of collection, the test results will be distorted, so compliance with the above conditions is mandatory.
- Make sure the name and surname and the admission information are on the container, otherwise inform the admissions and sampling authorities.
- Place the sample container in a specially designed urine specimen collection.
- If the sample is taken outside the laboratory, place the container in the refrigerator after collection of the sample and return to the laboratory the same day.

Results due to non-compliance can lead to important medical issues being ignored. The lab staff is ready to answer your questions at all stages.
