Container Types

Many urine specimen containers today have strayed away from the simple plastic material to something that's a little more durable. Several urine collection containers today are made using polypropylene or other hardened materials, making leaks or breaks nearly impossible. Other sample cups are still available using simple materials, such as single-use paper cups.

Caps and Other Closures

Urine specimen cups have come a long way from the open-container types that were used in medical facilities. Keeping sample cups secured for transport is critical today thanks to off-site testing places. Secured items can be as simple as a screw cap to a biohazard bag. Other sample collection types include tubes.

Using a Cup vs. Collection Kit

Several facilities using sample cups will generally keep their testing areas in-house. These places will be able to lightly secure samples to send to a lab with results coming in quickly. Other places will need kits, or collection containers with more than a simple cup, to get the job done. These collection kits will include anything from cups, gloves, securing devices and a bag, or a mixture of other items, in order to secure a sample as safely as possible.

Which Kit Works Best Based on Need

Deciding whether or not to go with a simple cup-and-lid or complete sterilization using a bag and tightly-secured lid seems arbitrary but it can have an effect on the way the specimen is treated, tested and possibly lead to skewed results. It's best to know which testing system is in place before making a purchase; however, the options provided above should offer a proper guideline to the testing that works for you.
