Culture + Antibiotic: Urinary tract infections (utis) are most commonly caused by the bacterium e. Coli. Because of the bacterial etiology, antibiotics like Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) which effectively end up in the urinary tract are routinely used. Urine cultures ensure that the causative bacteria is a.) identified and b.) susceptible to the prescribed antibiotic.
