Clean Catch Urine Instructions - Male


Important: Failure to follow instructions may cause delay in treatment and unintended expense.

Wash hands with soap and water.

  1. If uncircumcised, retract foreskin.

  2. Wipe the end of penis with towelette provided. As you start to urinate, allow a small
    amount of urine to fall into the toilet bowl. (This clears the urethra of contaminants). Do
    not touch the inside of the cup.

  3. After the urine stream is well established, urinate into the cup. Once an adequate amount of urine fills the cup (the cup only needs to be half-full), remove the cup from the urine stream.

  4. Pass the remaining urine into the toilet.

  5. Screw the lid on the cup tightly (do not touch the inside of the cup or lid). Place the urine sample in the designated area/cupboard as directed by the technician.
