A urinalysis takes 24 hours and a urine culture takes around 48 hours. You should hear very quickly.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Do the home tests have the same screening and confirmation levels as federal urinalysis?

Expert:  Dr. R replied 7 years ago.
the home tests are more like a dipstick (yes or no answers). The urinalysis will actually quantify the amount.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

If the home test was negative could there still be a possiblility that the official urinalysis is positive?

Expert:  Dr. R replied 7 years ago.
