Dear colleague,
I am a clinical microbiologist working on streamlining the processing of
urinary specimens in a laboratory in order to save manpower.

The following issues are being considered at the moment:
1) Should microscopy be performed for all urine specimens?
2) How should urine from indwelling foley catheters be processed? Do we need
to do microscopy and urinalysis?

I would be grateful if any one can comment on the subject and send me a message.

With best regards,
