Brief Answer:
Yes, count is significant

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thank you for getting back. Yes this count is significant and sensitivity test needs to be done to check for sensitive antibiotic and treatment should be given for treating this organism. P. aerugiona is not normally found in urine sample so if it appears then it means that it is significant in causing UTI.

Hope i have answered your query. If you have any followup then feel free to ask.
Wishing you good health.
