A urinary swab, or urine swab, is a medical specimen collection tool used to obtain a urine sample for diagnostic testing. It consists of a long, slender, and sterile swab with an absorbent tip that can be easily inserted into the urethra to collect urine. This method is particularly useful in cases where traditional urine collection methods, such as midstream urine collection, are challenging or not feasible.
Urinary swabs are employed in various healthcare settings, including hospitals and clinics, and are especially helpful for patients with mobility issues, young children, or individuals who may find it difficult to provide a clean catch urine sample. The swab is inserted into the urethra, where it absorbs a urine sample directly. After collection, the swab is typically placed in a sterile container and sent to a laboratory for analysis, aiding in the diagnosis of urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted infections, and other urinary conditions.
