Abstract

The interpretation of the urinary protein : creatinine ratio (UPC) in urine samples with concurrent haematuria can be confusing, as blood may increase the protein level measured in the urine.

The objectives of this experiment were:

To determine if urinary blood contamination affects the UPC level.

To determine whether urine sample colour can aid interpretation of the UPC in blood contaminated urine.
