Cystocentesis, and it is the most sterile way to collect a urine sample. They insert a needle directly into the bladder and draw up some urine. It is not without risks though, which is why most vets stick with trying to get a sample the natural way.

I've used the same method as you to get a feline urine sample in clinic, minus the saran wrap. If all your vet is interested in is crystals then sterility isn't as big a deal.

Good Luck!
