Peezy Midstream is a welcome innovation with clinicians and health leaders alike. Here you can read a variety of testimonials from a cross section of medical opinion formers and commentators.

Barts & The Royal NHS Trust / Spire Healthcare

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.

Professor James Barlow

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.

Louise de Winter

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.

Gail Adams

My audit of Peezy Midstream shows significant improvements to the accuracy of routine urine screening in antenatal clinic. The audit, carried out across 680 pregnant women has evidenced a reduction in false positive specimens, delivering better clinical care, cost savings and efficiencies to my department.

Sylvia Bone

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.

Tom Lewis

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.
