    How do I store urine sample over night?

    Another suspected UTI. Got a rx for cipro pending c&s but lab was closed before sample was collected. Now need to keep sample and deliver it tommorrow. How do I store it over night? Room temp or fridge? Thanks for any advice. Nancy

    Put the sample container in the fridge.

      If you have another container a fresh sample would be better

        Thank you. I'll have to put it in the fridge, that was our last container.
        thanks for your help, Nancy

          While at the lab ask for some extra containers to keep on hand. My local lab has no problem giving me two or three to have on hand in case I need them. That way they can always get a fresh sample.

            Agree with refrigeration of the freshest sample you can get.
