Anatomy Lab

WARDS simulating Urinalysis Lab

  I. Purpose and Hypothesis:
      The purpose of this lab was to test four different “urine samples” (chemicals) and analyze the results. We were to observe our observations and try to see if there were any possible disorders according to the pH and crystl type.

  II. Procedure:
      The procedure was very simple to follow.
        1. Retrieve 10 mL of each simulated urine sample in the medicine cups.
        2. List the physical characteristics of each urine sample (note the color, clarity, and smell) and record on graph.
        3. Next test for pH, get 4 pH test papers and place a pH strip into each of the urine samples. Leave in the urine sample for 30 seconds and remove.
        4. Complare the color to the pH color chart and record the pH of that urine sample.
        5. Next test is testing for sugar.
        6. Place 250 mL of wter into a large beaker (400 mL).
        7. Turn on hot plte to High
        8. To each test tube, add 3 mL of a urine sample and 3 mL of the benedict solution.
        9. Place tube in the hot beaker and let it boil for 2 minutes.
      10. Remove and note the color of the urine sample.
      11. Repeat for all tests.
      12.   Testing for Protein is the next test.
        13.Remove 3 mL of each urine sample and place in different test tubes.
        14. add 1 mL of Biuret solution and record the color change.

  IV. Results and Conclusion
      The reults obtained from the lab were interesting. It was difficult trying to figure out which patient had which disorder.

1) I feel that Jeff Jones has diabetes. I think this because common symptoms of diabetes match Jeffs’ symptoms: he has an increased urine output, increased appetite, and has great thirst.
2) I feel Mr. Thompson has parachymal. He has red blood cells in his urine which is a big sign.
3) Mrs. Smith has glomerulonephritis. She had a high number of white...
