The use of human bodily fluids such as urine has been in the past commonly used in teaching labs’ Thispractice has been severely restricted for various reasons, one being the potential for exposure toinfectious agents. There are alternatives to using actual bodily fluids for learning although they are notoften the best practice for learning disease infection and prevention or practicing the scientific methodand use of controls. The following is adapted from the Student Urinalysis and Analysis Activity Kit fromCarolina Biological Supply, 20i”7.This virtual lab exercise on Urinalysis is designed to help understand some of the basics of usingbiological samples compared to controls in determining an interpretation of real data. Urinalysis is usedby doctors to assess various factors of urine, including color and pH, that could indicate disease. Thesefactors are normally kept in balance by the kidneys as they filter blood and produce urine but maychange under certain conditions like disease or medication use, or even with certain foods. Table Lshows the urine colors and possible things that affect color change and potential disease associated withthe specific urine color (Carolina Biological Supply, 2017).
