|Abstract:||Bacturcult, diagnostic culture tube, was tested for a clinical evaluation of urinary tract infections. 89 urine specimens obtained from 23 mid-voided urine by males and 66 samples from transurethral catheterisation in 39 females with urinary tract infections diagnosed on clinical symptoms and its clinical course and over 10 white blood cells per high power fields of urinary sediment, were poured into Bacturcult tube and incubated for 24 hours at 37℃. Bacterial counts were compared with other techniques. The results were as follows: 1. Of 38 urine samples showing the existence of more than 100, 000 organism per ml by pour plate technique, 37 were significant bacteriuria by Bacturcult. 2. Of 48 urine specimens which were positive in TTC test, 41 were significant bacteriuria by Bacturcult. 3. Presumptive identification of causative organism by color change of Bacturcult was good in lactose fermenters such as E. coli.|
