Urine Microscopy: Amorphous Urates
Amorphous urates are laboratory results seen under the microscope in a urine specimen. It is most common in specimens examined after refrigeration. It is characteristically seen grossly as pink pellets after centrifugation. But seen under the microscope it is seen as yellow to brown aggregates of small rounded particles. Which adheres to mucus threads and casts. Presence of amorphous urates in urine specimen proves little clinical value.
