1. A disposable urine collection apparatus, comprising:
a first urine collection device, comprising:
a collection reservoir having an internal volume;
a diverter having an inlet port and a first flow control member for fluidly interconnecting the inlet port to a first passageway of the diverter in a first position of the first flow control member, and for fluidly interconnecting the inlet port to a second passageway of the diverter in a second position of the first flow control member; and
a reservoir interface fixedly and fluidly interconnected to the collection reservoir, and fluidly interconnectable to the first passageway of the diverter, wherein when the first flow control member is in the first position the inlet port of the diverter is fluidly interconnected to the collection reservoir via the first passageway of the diverter and the reservoir interface, and wherein the reservoir interface includes a second flow control member for closing a passageway of the reservoir interface in a first position of the second flow control member; and
a second urine collection device in fluid communication with the first urine collection device, the second urine collection device comprising:
a cartridge having an internal chamber;
a tubular inlet member having an inlet port at a first end and a second end fluidly interconnected to the internal chamber of the cartridge, wherein the inlet port of the tubular inlet member is selectively interconnectable to an outlet port of the second passageway of the diverter; and
a projecting portion designed for removable connection to a light detection monitoring device, the projecting portion comprising an internal volume in fluid connection with the internal chamber of the cartridge.
