Normal color: is yellow or amber yellow.


Abnormal colors:

4.Reddish (RBC’s due to stone or blood mesentration).

5.Milky (usually in male due to sperms in urine).

6.Cloudy with offensive odor (due to pus , crystals or epithelial cells).

patients must collect samples during 24 hrs.


Normally : 1003 – 1024

In the report write Q.N.S when the quantity is not sufficient .


2-Chemical properties:



Acidic or alkaline (may caused by eating excess of fruits or vegetables) .

Normally : Nil


Abnormally : trace , + , ++ , +++ . according to the read of protein strip .


Diseased case : due to increase in pus or RBC’s.

Undiseased case :due to eating excess of proteins or during pregnancy (usually in the third trimester)



Trace , +(160-195) , ++( >200) , +++ (250-300). according to the read of glucose strip.
