Squamous Epithelial Cells in Urine
The pathological problems connected with kidneys and other parts of the body can be detected by the presence of columnar epithelial cells in the urine. The urine may be contaminated if squamous epithelial cells are found in the urine. Giving urine sample in the morning might be one of the possible causes of this, but there are many others.
Avoiding Squamous Epithelial Cells in Urine
The contamination of the urine can be detected by the presence of the squamous cells and this is the only thing this presence signifies. So if you want to avoid this, it is best not to have them in your urine and there are ways in which this can be done. Correct collecting of urine is very important to avoid contaminated urine. Collecting a midstream is one of the ways this can be prevented. This is due to the lining of the skin, which may contain loose epithelial cells. They are located in the penis and labia area and usually washed away with the help from urine flow. So midstream is the best way of getting a good sample. Giving sample needs to be done between the beginning and ending of the voiding. As you can see, this is not a big problem and it can easily be avoided by proper sample taking.
