A urinalysis takes 24 hours and a urine culture takes around 48 hours. You should hear very quickly.

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

Urologist: Dr. R, Board Certified Urologist replied 8 years ago
the home tests are more like a dipstick (yes or no answers). The urinalysis will actually quantify the amount.

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

Urologist: Dr. R, Board Certified Urologist replied 8 years ago
very unlikely
