Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
An insignificant growth means the growth shown by the urine sample does not consist of any pathogenic organisms. It contains normal commensals of the body only. It is not suggestive of contamination either.
This report is not suggestive of any urinary infection.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

To remember clearly the result of culture is no bacteria found and clinical insignificant growth. I think urine is supposed to have no bacteria. So the insignificant growth Of bacteria is come from the body right? Thanks

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Yes. Normally urine does not show any growth. The insignificant growth is likely to be from the body or the environment in which the growth plate was incubated.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
