Quantity: I believe what you are asking is '15-25/hpf' which would mean 15 to 25 per high powered field. This is a quantity counted out usually under a high powered microscope. How good or bad depends on what is being measured.

Yes: Yes, there are tests on urine to try to determine an unborn baby's gender, but the accuracy is uncertain. The tests may be looking for traces of male dna (y chromosome) in the pregnant woman's urine. That means enough of an unborn boy's dna would have to cross the placenta, enter his mother's bloodstream, and get filtered through her kidneys into her urine ... To cause a "boy baby" test result.

What is the meaning of barbiturates in a random urine test in a patient not taking barbiturates?

Possibly NSAIDS: Motrin and other meds in that class, nsaids "can" infrequently result in a false positive. Some patients may be taking meds. Which contain barbiturate but they are not aware of it, such as "fioricet". Random urine drug tests usually include an initial screening test, sensitive to detect substances but sometimes false pos., these must always be sent for confirmation.
