Pee-post

Innovative and user-friendly device for standardized collection of first-void urine and optimized for mail-delivery

When a person thinks he or she contracted a sexually transmitted infection (STI's), it is often difficult to get tested due to stigma's and barriers. This neglect can have serious health consequenses such as infertility. Several laboratories in Flanders and the Netherlands offer an online testing platform, from which the patient will receive a self-sampling kit. The sample is returned to the laboratory, and results (and possible treatment) can be obtained through the online platform. First void urine is used for the reliable detection of STI's, but is difficult to collect in a traditional sampling cup. Novosanis' Colli-Pee is unique in the standardized and reliable first-void urine collection.
