Description

The clinical test for red urine is a test for the presence of blood in the urine. It is usually done by collecting a urine sample from the patient and then testing it for the presence of red blood cells. The sample can be collected in a clean container or directly from the patient's bladder using a catheter. The sample is then examined under a microscope to look for the presence of red blood cells. If the sample contains red blood cells, then the test is positive for the presence of blood in the urine.
