What is a dilute specimen?
- A specimen that contains too much water as a result of the donor drinking too much water or adding water to their sample
- A specimen with creatinine (a natural byproduct of physical activity) and specific gravity (density) values that are considered abnormally low for human urine
- A dilute specimen can bear results of either Positive-Dilute or Negative-Dilute
