Abstract 250 urine specimens were classified into 7 categories on the basis of viable counts and the bacteria found. Theresults of 7 bacteriuria screening tests performed on the same specimens are presented in relation to this classification. Four rapid culture tests and a triphenyl tetrazolium chloride reduction test proved capable of detecting specimens classed as ‘significant’ or ‘not significant’ bacteriuria with accuracies between 95 and 85%. For more accurate and subtlecategorization of specimens, a calibrated drop viable count procedure is recommended.
