What is a urine screen?

A urine screen is, as the name suggests, an examination of the urine status and urine sediment. Through your urine good research can be done into various conditions. Some conditions can be noticed at an early stage in your urine, because it is quickly clear when substances are present that normally should not be there.

What do we determine during the urine test?

These determinations help to demonstrate disorders and / or inflammation. Moreover, they can be used to check whether there is blood in the urine.

Why a urine test?

A urine screening can detect various conditions at an early stage can also be tested for a wide range of diseases. It is a simple test, which can therefore provide a clear picture of the status of various conditions.
The accuracy of the test for Urinescreening is conducted through ISO-certified laboratories. The accuracy of a test method is expressed in terms of specificity and sensitivity. However, the most important aspect is that the results are interpreted and accepted among general practitioners and hospitals. This is the case with our venous samples. Mutual acceptance may not always be present due to potentially reduced reliability with a capillary sample.
Most tests generally take 24-48 hours. Tests that go through an LC-MS method generally take longer, think about an average of 3-7 working days. Additionally, it also depends on the location. Some locations do the analysis themselves and others outsource it to another lab.
Interpreting the results of Urinescreening is not always easy and should be seen in the broader picture, along with anamnesis and physical examination. In the doctor's advice section, the query in which you can already outline your complaints is taken into account, otherwise, the results are interpreted in conjunction with the other results. If necessary, the doctor can call to ask about physical abnormalities. You don't have to interpret the results yourself because there is always advice and explanation from the doctor.
If the results of the test for Urinescreening are clinically significantly abnormal, the doctor will contact you by phone. If you are not reachable, you will receive an email. This includes advice and an explanation of the abnormal results and what you can do about them. If you need a prescription or referral, we can help with that.

For example, tests for IVF treatment are often reimbursed. After your order, you will receive an invoice that you can submit to your insurance.

For blood tests, we always use venous sampling. This is the gold standard for blood collection. Over-the-counter tests, such as a finger prick test, use the capillary route for blood collection. These do not always give the same results and the accuracy depends on how, where, and with which technique the collection is done. The advantage, of course, is that the test is easier and less painful to take.
You can always pay with iDeal and credit card (VISA, Mastercard, and Amex). This also includes Apple Pay. The phlebotomists at the collection location cannot accept cash payments.
