I were requested to jot down a foreword to the subsequent variation of the Vademecum of scientific Bio­ chemistry renamed to Differential prognosis by means of Laboratory medication. The Editor in-Chief, Professor Dusan Mesko, conceived the assumption of the Vademecum in the course of a truly intensely, in­ tellectually energetic interval as a vacationing Olga Havel Fellow from Slovak Republic on the Mayo health center in Rochester.

Normal urine volume is 650 2200 mV24 hr. Turbidity or cloudiness may be caused by excessive cellular materiaVprotein in the urine or may develop from crystallization/precipitation of salts upon standing at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Clearing of the specimen after addition of a small amount of acid indicates that precipitation of salts is the probable cause of turbidity. Chemical analysis.

One of the methods is clean catch. midstream specimen collected after cleansing the external urethral meatus.
