Development of Colli-Pee in a box for home collection

Development of Colli-Pee® in a box for home collection: An innovative urine collection solution for home-based sampling.

Colli-Pee® is a patented, award-winning device that efficiently and hygienically captures urine. The Colli-Pee® platform offers improved diagnostic accuracy and patient comfort compared to a regular urine cup.

A single kit option that allows easy urine collection and postal delivery has the potential to increase participation in sexually transmitted infections (STIs)(1) and cancer screening programs(2).

Why is home-collection needed?

More and more people want to take control of their own health, especially in the comfort of their homes. Hospital-based testing is associated to high costs, requires essential healthcare worker resources and involves risks of infection to the patient as well as exposure risks to both patients and staff.

Additionally, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed the perception of diagnostics in general, especially home-based diagnostics as well as self-testing. Major shifts in healthcare procedures have emerged as facilities adapt at-home testing methods to supplement in-person clinic visits.

The need for additional decentralized testing capacity is now more apparent than ever. Currently, there is a lack of user-friendly and high quality urine sampling devices for use at home that can be delivered in a simple and cost-efficient way.

Companies and researchers want a one-stop-shop sampling solution, which includes the device for collection, postal packaging as well as safe storage and transport methods. For this reason, Novosanis is working on developing a Colli-Pee® in a box for home collection kit.
