The Urine Culture and Sensitivity test are done by collecting the Urine Sample in a clean sterilized hygienic bottle; preferably on an empty stomach early in the morning. First, the Urine Routine results are declared post 14-16 hours of the test being conducted. For the Urine Culture report, one has to wait for 48 – 72 hours for the report to be declared. The Urine Sample is kept in the Laboratory for 2-3 days, and a lab worker will keep a close check on it. They would make a note of how many types of germs or bacteria are present in the urine sample and how many are growing. The test is termed Negative if there are no germs noticed in the urine sample. If there is an indication of some germs growing, then that is a clear indication that the person has a UTI. E-Coli bacteria are the most common bacteria that cause UTIs. Post detection of the bacteria, they would then analyze further to check the urine sensitivity test, which means finding the antibiotics that can affect this situation and cure the infection completely.
