Bacteria show a size between 1-5 µm and appear as cocci or rod-shaped. Bacteriuria, the presence of bacterial cells in urine, can indicate a bacterial infection of the urinary tract. Depending on the composition of the cell wall, bacteria are distinguished between Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The absence of bacteria clearly allows the rule-out of a urinary tract infection.
