Procedure Kit/Trays, Collection, Urine, Mid-Stream

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed for obtaining a urine sample after the first urine containing urethral contaminants is voided; the sample thus obtained (i.e., a midstream sample) is free of most germs normally found on the urethra and/or skin of the perineal area. Items in these kits usually include plastic containers/bags, a collecting tube, an inlet ring, disposable towelettes, an identification label, a valve, sterile wipes, sterile gloves, and a clip or clamp. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Mid-stream urine collection procedure kits and trays are also intended to protect specimens against external contamination and/or patient handling before, during, and after voiding. They are mainly used in hospital clinical laboratories and in other healthcare facilities.
