Wijnegem, Belgium, November 30 2018:
Novosanis announced today that the European Patent Office (EPO) has granted the company's patent application in Europe [Patent Number: 2892434], for Colli-Pee a urine capturing device that enables standardized collection of first-void urine (first 20ml of urine) by both genders without the need to interrupt urine flow.
“Getting the European patent granted for our Colli-Pee device is a major achievement for our company and confirms the innovative and unique aspects of our device. First-void urine collected with Colli-Pee is highly suitable for the non-invasive detection of sexually transmitted infections such as HPV as well as early detection and monitoring of (urologic) cancer biomarkers. We are excited for the new opportunities this brings for Colli-Pee in the world of diagnostics and healthcare in Europe,” explains Koen Beyers, CTO Novosanis.
