with growth of two or more organisms on culture, were considered not to indicate significant bacteriuria
One hundred microliters of an Escherichia coli suspension (106-101[degrees] colony-forming units/L) was added to 900 [micro]L of pooled urine samples without significant bacteriuria
All urine samples from patients with tumors were checked for significant bacteriuria
or leukocyturia (>10/[micro]L) as well as for the presence of erythrocytes (>10/[micro]L).
In comparison to standard urine cultures, an abstract in the Annals of Clinical and Laboratory Sciences (May 1995) found that SMFT detected 92% of the samples with significant bacteriuria
can then be identified as [greater than] 100,000 CFU/mL for asymptomatic women and [greater than] 100-1000 CFU/mL for symptomatic women
This is particularly frustrating considering that, in many hospitals, as few as 10 per cent of specimens reveal significant bacteriuria
