The specific objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship between osmolality and specific gravity of urine samples from clinically normal adult Hispaniolan Amazon parrots (Amazona ventralis) and to determine a formula to convert USG measured on a reference scale, [USG.
Specific gravity of urine was measured using a handheld refractometer in each thawed aliquot before shipment to the CDC, except for 11 urine samples that had specific gravity measured using an Atago PAL-10S refractometer (Atago, Bellevue, WA, USA) at the CDC.
Egan said: ``Dr Adrian McGoldrick was using a refractrometer machine which tests the specific gravity of urine.
Although semiquantitative tests vary in accuracy with the specific gravity of urine (a variation that is substantially corrected for with quantitative tests), the authors note that the practical advantages of semiquantitative tests may outweigh their disadvantages.
