Colli-Pee Postal Kits for home collection

3.jpgAn innovative urine collection solution for
home-based sampling

The Colli-Pee® Postal Kit is an accessory to the Colli-Pee®, which aims to leverage postal services, for the distribution of the device to the patient and/or the return of the collected urine sample.
Colli-Pee® Postal Kits have the potential to increase participation
in sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and cancer screening programs.

Why is home-collection needed?

Home-collection advantagesMore and more people want to take control of their own health 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 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 developed Colli-Pee® Postal Kits for home collection.

Projects

Novosanis is working on a better understanding of the needs for home-based urine sampling through Colli-Pee®. Some projects/collaborations include:

Tropical Institute of Medicine, Antwerp – MSM Study

Recent data by the Tropical Institute of Medicine in Antwerp, Belgium compared routine clinic-based urine collection through a regular urine cup with home-collected urine sampling using Colli-Pee®, among Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) users.

The data shows that home-collection followed by postal delivery of urine samples did not influence STI detection. Only 3 infections were not detected in the home-collected urine samples, while a total of 11 additional STIs (three CT, two NG and six MG infections) were detected in the home-collected samples using Colli-Pee®, and not found in the equivalent clinic collected urine samples(1). This methodology offers opportunities to reach a wider population, especially high-risk individuals or participants that are reluctant to access traditional STI health services.

Sciensano project

Researchers at The Sciensano Institute in Belgium are using urine collected through Colli-Pee® to understand Chlamydia presence in all ages and genders in the Belgian population. An individual that agrees to join the study will receive a test kit, which includes a Colli-Pee® and instructions for use. Participants will send the urine sample back to the laboratory for testing via postal mail.

The study aims to include at least 2,000 participants of mixed ages, genders and backgrounds.
