A clinical trial to ascertain reduced bacterial contamination in Peezy Midstream collected urine specimens has been published by the Loyola Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

The Clinical Trial, a collaboration between Departments of Microbiology, Urology and Obstetrics and Gynaecology, concludes that Peezy Midstream delivers a much better ‘clean catch’ midstream urine specimen than either traditional methods or the use of an antibacterial wipe used before a patient provides the specimen.

Midstream urine collection: an interview with Giovanna Forte

Thank you news-medical.net

I have used a number of Peezy Midstreams and they are great. It certainly makes testing my ketones so much less messy and more hygienic.

The instructions are straightforward. The first one I was unable to take a big enough sample from but after that it’s been straightforward. It will certainly give a more accurate reading in pregnancy and is so easy to use with the majority of patients. In Derby Hospital they give me a cardboard pot with my name on to use and can have it sitting in the sampling room for sometime; I had to remind them on my last visit that my sample was still waiting to be checked after half an hour. ”
