Description

The clinical test for monocytes acquired from a patient's urine is a urine sediment analysis. This test is used to detect the presence of monocytes in the urine. The method for obtaining the sample involves collecting a urine sample from the patient and then centrifuging the sample to separate the cells from the urine. The cells are then stained with a special dye and examined under a microscope to identify the presence of monocytes. The number of monocytes present in the sample can then be counted and the results can be used to diagnose certain conditions.
