• The importance of sample handling and the “fresh is best” concept in obtaining the most accurate
• Understanding the three parts of the complete urinalysis: physical, chemical, and sediment
• Importance of proper centrifugation methods
• Importance of line smear technique when evaluating for the presence or absence of bacteria
