Making midstream mainstream

Prompt, safe, accurate

Improving women’s point of care urine screening

Prompt, accurate healthcare with cost savings across the patient pathway.

Peezy Midstream transforms essential urine screening for routine and prenatal medicine, delivering accuracy and right-first-time prescribing. 

Urine is one of the most important carriers of cancer biomarkers, bacteria, protein, glucose and more, all of which can raise the alarm to serious illness. If left undiagnosed these conditions can become difficult and costly to treat.

Traditional urine collection leads to 1 in 4 unreliable samples and even more false-positive dipped results; these prevent early diagnoses, creating worse conditions, dangerous unnecessary antibiotic prescribing and costly unplanned hospital admissions … £$ millions are being flushed away.

Accurate urine collection is essential for antenatal screening: see our Evidence page for the clinical and cost benefits.

We have used Peezy Midstream with patients in clinic. Comparison with historical specimen results show that it collects a better specimen with lower contamination, which means fewer repeats. Patients are happy with the hygiene because urine goes into the tube and not on their hands. The lab is happy to receive a proper MSU in a clean tube that fits their analysers. The system delivers accuracy, efficiency and hygiene for all parties; I would like to see it used routinely across the NHS

Peezy Midstream is one of those valuable, simple, low cost and no-brainer innovations that I’m always amazed don’t get adopted faster and more widely.

Urine samples are used to diagnose a broad variety of conditions and to be able to deliver an accurate diagnosis it is vital that the samples are not contaminated. Research strongly indicates that using the Peezy Midstream specimen collection device can dramatically reduce the contamination rate, thus leading to more accurate readings and reducing the need for repeat tests. This will undoubtedly have a significant time and cost savings for the NHS and must surely be a sensible innovation to adopt.

Health and safety in any medicine is of vital importance to those who work on the frontline and the collection of urine samples is a daily necessity for many. The adoption of innovative solutions, such the Peezy Midstream, allows a safe and hygienic alternative to more traditional methods, improving not just the experience of our members but also enhances the dignity of the patients they serve.

As you know I am a considerable supporter of the Peezy and we have had good results in pre-op, moving out now to antenatal. I also use Peezy for complex patients who may genuinely have mixtures when it is important to be confident that contamination is not likely to be an issue.

Rubbish in, rubbish out. If you don’t make the effort to collect the specimen properly, all the clever stuff you do in the lab later, won’t work.

Reduction in laboratory defined contamination has been shown and there is potential for use of Peezy in collecting all future Obstetric MSUs.
