The office laboratory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Urinary infections and gonorrhea are two of the most frequently encountered problems in office urology. Traditionally, examination of specimens has been limited to microscopic analysis and standard loop inoculum or pour plate cultures performed in a commercial laboratory. A number of new tests are now available which make it possible for the practicing urologist to diagnose urinary infections and gonorrhea in the office with considerable accuracy and a minimum of expense. This article reviews the techniques essential for careful collection and storage of specimens, and the simple methods currently available for chemical and bacteriologic identification of infections.
