HIV prevention and STI detection
Given the disproportionate impact of STIs and HIV on the same populations, more convenient STI testing methods are needed to reach groups at risk. PrEP provides the opportunity to reach people at highest HIV and STI risk, expanding HIV prevention and optimizing STI services. Urine has shown to be a more accepted and effective sample type to detect several STIs.
Womens day in Science

blog impact covid-19 on cervical cancer screening
Cancer screening rates have significantly dropped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Alternative sampling methods are essential to continue healthcare practices in these challenging times. Urine as a sample type has shown great potential especially for cervical cancer screening
Blog volatile organic compounds banner
Recent research has shown that volatile organic compounds (VOCs), a group of small molecule metabolites, that are continuously generated in the human body can act as biomarkers in cancer detection. Distinct urinary VOC patterns have been associated with different cancer types, as well as cancer stages.
HIV & cervical cancer
Detection of HPV in urine offers great potential to reach women who do not participate in regular screening programs and are HIV positive.
Women's preference blog
Urine as a sample type is well-accepted, and often preferred by women. As urine can detect HPV, the most common cause of cervical cancer, the sample type has potential to reach a wider population for cervical cancer screening.
Vaccines play a critical role in protecting people against disease. HPV vaccination is primarily used for young girls, but is also recommended for boys. This blog explains the potential of HPV vaccination in reducing HPV-related cancers for girls and boys.
Finding simple methods to continue to receive care and essential medical services is critical at this time. On World Health Day, we share how home-based urine sampling offers a solution to reach a wider population.
International Women's Day - March 8 2020
